only the dust (of greatness)

Backyard Stars, Beechworth Victoria (Australia) January 2021

behold . . .

I behold
with a shaking hand

the universe
hovering in the sky
above me

the giant oaks
are small

the stars
are large

while I
am nothing
but the dust
shed casually
by greatness

Some blurry backyard stars, as promised to Cheryl a couple of days ago.
