galaxy

The Galaxy 

On the terrace in the sun I closed my eyes
and saw coloured light dancing under my
eyelids like a galaxy that only existed inside
of me… or is the real galaxy an illusion. 
Scientists watch stars in their great telescope 
but only see what is in their heads… 
And we agree because we too only see what
is in our own mind. Ruby stars and pink moons
and the dream of immortality that our souls 
fly to a mysterious planet like our own where
death has been vanquished.
