    Voice in the Light


    Down the heavens, thru the clouds,
    across the winds that churn the night,
    the velvet darkness pins the sky
    with stars of a silvern light.

    At a gallop in the dark, the light rays come,
    first the fast, then behind come the slow.
    They both reach the eyes at slight different times
    and a Twinkle is their impacts aglow.

    In that blink, some men see their last Hope.
    In that flash, some men hear their Faith
    and a dim corner shows my old Courage lost
    now lit by this messenger of Space.

    And it seems that the Infinite is speaking
    to me, Man the infinitely small,
    that we are both the ends of a cosmic circle
    not touching but embracing us all

    and the unmeasured distance between us
    is one breath of a heartbeat’s sigh
    from its Voice to our ear thru a velvet darkness
    locked in the twinkling of an eye.

    And in the silent and echoless vast uncertain
    dim of some darkened night
    when one star blinks and jumps great distance
    straddled to a cosmic light
    thru the blackness of a million midnights
    crossing spans of a chasmed sea,
    if you listen for the light, in the twinkling of an eye,
    it will speak to the dark in thee.

    Rich - Man has been fascinated with the stars when he couldn't explain them and equally fascinated with them when he could. Perhaps its that darkness, that emptiness of the night that compels us to seek or impute explanations for its void and vastness when we think we're all alone in the Universe when maybe we're only just far, far away. You're right Rich "let da light shine through". Here's twinklin' at ya. Namyh

    Excellent for sure

    Excellent Flow Harry!

    To be captured by the lunar skys is something to behold.
    Once a day one should reflect and look
    To see what truth it holds
    Explore thru prism
    Record the find
    Expand the wisdom
    Enlighten the mind!

    Great Read.. for sure... Thanks Harry this flow it is inspiring.:welldone:

    this one deserves immediate hits!! this here brings home that astrononomical/spiritual connection between God and the universe.
    Line for line it's on point, especially the last 2 stanzas.

    Hodee – If it put a smile on ya and a pep in your step, this scribbler of words is content and can now go where no one has gone before and say without reluctance “Beam me up Scotty and give me Warp 7”. Ha! Ha! Ha! Thanks Hodee. HH

    j’hiah – You make a great point. If there is a connection between God and the Universe, the astronomical and the spiritual, then it holds the right hand of God and the left hand of the Universe inside itself and is a connector called Man.……..Us! I’m just glad to be a marcher in such a parade holding balloons and still listening for that voice. Thanks for your words j’hiah. Thanks for the hit. HH
