Astronomer

It comes to you
in a moment of quiet
contemplation, in the solid
silent complete
absence of
sound

Focused
on mystical
blue-green orb,
hung like an ornament
in infinite black tapestry
you come to understand
we are, all of us,
guests in this
Garden of
Eden

    I love the imagery... even without a picture, I would have seen it. Brilliant and deep!
