    Wait for 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 eye at slight different times
    and a Twinkle is their impacts aglow.

    In that blink, some men see their last Hope.
    In its 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 a breath, a heartbeat or sigh
    in the Voice which talks thru a velvet darkness
    locked in the twinkling of an eye.

    So 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
    and blacker than a million midnights
    is that span of a chasmed sea;
    if you listen for the light, in the twinkling of an eye,
    it will speak to the dark in thee.

    HH​

    We are such small elements within this universe, yes there is one on high that provides a light, if we just open our eyes to see it. Your images are astounding, thanks for this.
