Contentment

Written by: jim joyce

Stretched out on a hill of grass
Gazing at the heavens passing above
Diamonds shimmering across the black velvet sky
Glittering , burning , fire and ice , content 
To lie there not knowing what it all meant 

A meteor shot across the milky way 
And mighty Orion pointed the way 
Still I lay , watching the sky 
For signs of change,, But none came ,
so I lay content not knowing what it all meant
