    The Glimpse

    Would you take the grand step 'cross the sky
    to stars whose sparkles beckon ?
    And sever the umbilical cord of gravity,
    be awed by planetary majesty,
    embrace God's endless silvern tapestry
    and escape Earth's pull each second.

    Then step on soil of a distant star,
    first footprint at Heaven’s gate.
    For centuries, you pointed to journey there
    to catch that glimpse of God so rare.
    Now your arrow, man made of tensiled gear,
    is a star leaping Ark of Faith.

    And tho' you're a faint echo, a tiny whisper
    in the thunder of Time called Man;
    a trembling leaf on an outstretched branch,
    a blade of grass on dry land,
    a corner patch on some crazy quilt
    where good and evil reign.
    But Greatest wonder, your relentless search,
    to jump the stars in a single lurch,
    to sit on God’s cosmic perch
    and view the Earth again !

    yes...

    i'd take that magical step...across a gulf that's far and wide
    take that journey, anyday...to make my home where God resides
    everyday, i pay my dues...trying to get the PASS i need
    that when i knock upon that gate...the master at arms will say
    "COME IN, PLEASE."

    THANK YOU.

    does this mean mankind gets a mulligan?

    a glimpse at brilliance?

    it would be nice to see the universe from a spiritual view

    one day

    I find this to be a wonderful view from where I sit in awe
    Searching that feeling of connectivity between
    God and Man so real is a wonderful experience
    felt deeply good while reading this vivid peace
    Thank you Mr. Hyman for expressing the journey...

    Rich – So very glad you took the ride to look back on the Earth. So glad this joint provided a ticket to travel to the view. Look on its back and you’ll see in print “Come back and ride anytime for free forever – compliments of the management” Thanks Rich. Namyh
