reaching stars

Poem #10 from a series of meditations: the Pilgrim

Back to the Pilgrim – Introduction


yes pilgrim
there is a way to the stars

it is right that you should wonder

their placement beyond immediate grasp
is a function of awe
the creation of a light
for aspiration

when you know
you may wish to reach and touch
hold them in the soft palm
of your hand

but ask yourself
if you knew
would that still be your need

or should they stay
awesome in your mind
where they began
