Us - Poem by Mike Barrett

Like stars
In the silence
Of the void
We drift
The darkness
We seek,
Not stopping to look
Nor realize
The light we,
Each of us,
Truly are!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem came out somewhere in the mid '80s one evening after gazing at the night sky. I've always been awe-struck when contemplating the heavens.....even as a youngster. If you visit my personal web-site at http: //We-R-1.info/ you will see each poem printed against a starry night sky. Why? To reinforce the knowingness of the 'oneness' of all.
