Poem: White Orb

full moon 1The moon sits solo in the night sky

But really she is surrounded in the murky dark

By pinpoint planets and dazzling stars

All strung out in Universal beauty

Backdrops dotted into created patterns by mere humans

Or the circling nebula luminescent in its beauty

And the black holes sucking time in on itself

In a place where time may not even exist

Suns with planets spinning endlessly–

Holding mysteries we may never know

And the big white orb

Seemingly silent

Sometimes so close

Staring down on us with silver light

Pulling at our being and making water rise

Sometimes blinking out of sight

Only to creep slowly back

Like an unexpected laugh welling up from the recesses of one’s soul
