looking up

A Poem A Day in September #11

when he looked up
to the sky
the stars shone

darkness filled spaces
between points
of light

from here on the ground
the next place
seemed so very far

he selected a stone
to reach the heart
of the moon

and it rose high
then it turned
to fall at his feet


inter-star travel
should be driven
by dreams

how far
he could go
fueled by his desire

the hope in his heart
would take him
past Jupiter …

… could take him
to the stars


when I look up
to the night
I see stars shine
