Somewhere Out There - Poem by Steve Hancock

The ebony canvas of midnight
Spangled with intricate stars
Entice my gaze to wonder
Could there be such as life on Mars

The intergalactic lighthouse
The sphere we know as the moon
Hangs like a Chinese lantern
Evading my arid Lampoon

The planets aligned in formation
Resemble immense stepping stone
Perhaps the stairway to heaven
Spanning the great unknown

Comets that travel eternal
Descend from galaxies afar
In the scheme of things were miniscule
How vulnerable we are

My thoughts drift way beyond light years
Pure interstellar reverie
Perhaps on some distant planet
Somewhere out there someone wonders like me
