Movements of a Distant Sun

                                            Movements of a Distant Sun

Far out in the cosmos 
A cloud of gas 
has become a sun 
On earth we watch its movements 
From our small planet 
We consider the distant star 
Have civilizations grown up there?
Have other voices lifted their voices in song?
Light - years separate us 
From that distant system
What can we know of them?
Travelers on another sphere 
What can we know of them?
And what do they know of us?
Are they peering out at our world
through the immense darkness?
What do they think of our creations?
Are they indifferent to them?
Are they content to be observed 
and never casting an eye 
upon our precarious home?

    An immense universe begs to find the answers to so many questions. The sky is always wonderful to look at and dream on.

    Wonderful, I think of questions like this all the time. Some people are so quick to say that we are the ONLY life in light years and light years of infinite mysteries. Its so complexing how they can except the creation, from whatever source, of an infinite universe, but refuse to except the possiblity of other life among us.
