In Search Of The Force - Poem by JJ Evendon

I have scoured distant galaxies
peered at the very fringes of the known universe.
Witnessed the mighty destruction of supernova
and watched comets blaze their trail through the heavens.
I have endlessly searched for transmissions from alien life
but heard nothing.
I am in the pursuit of one thing:
the source of 'The Force'.
It's out there - somewhere - in the universe
But where?
The feeling of the force is everywhere -
It's not that I want to find it
rather to discover I cannot.
I turn my telescope to the moon
and see something that looks like a smile.
Is what I am looking at, what I am looking for?
A flash of a shooting star streaks across the night sky
and I am forced to look again.
