Stars At Night
Glittering within eternal dark void of space
Galaxies and universes, billions of light years away
From planet earth with teeming varied species of life
Forests, oceans, mountains, lands peopled.
More stars than grains of sand in the Arabian Desert
Ever moving outwards into the engulfing darkness.
Billions of light years beyond the stars we see
More suns with moons and planets circling.
Could life be possible or are we alone in the void
Never to reach out and share knowledge?
Where does space begin and end with sparkling stars
How was it created --- this wondrous eternity to behold
Making us wonder and puzzle over its mysteries
And how could life on earth come to be without a miracle.
