Poetry is Music and Song.
The word universe comes from one, meaning uni, and verse, meaning song.
Here is my poem, One Song, about the universe.
Have you ever stood alone at night
and gazed with wonder
at the bight starry light
and moonbeams, in the heavens high
reaching all across the sky,
And beheld the Universe?
Been spellbound by the vast expanse,
perfection, beauty, harmony and balance.
Awed by the wondrous sight.
Felt insignificant, beneath
The Maker's might.
And beheld the Universe.
Or do you think it's just by chance,
the heavens do their dance?
That by coincidence, not providence
that stars our sky enhance?
Without confusion or destruction,
to fulfil their heavenly function.
Created and sustained without beginning or end,
a timeless Universe; marvellous to comprehend.
Yet man, who lives about one hundred years,
full of vanity and tears,
So noble and so grand,
Still struggles to understand.
The Power so great, so transverse,
Who spoke into being
The Heavens and
Mankind, open your eyes unto seeing.
Behold The Universe!

I think I remember you writing this poem? It’s beautiful!
Yes Louise, I have polished it a bit since it’s first writing and I just love that image of the Sabi Sabi night sky.
I am really enjoying your posts and poetry. Poetry is truly such beautiful expression; it says so much often with few words.
