One People, One Sky

The welkin above and the stars thereof are a true delight to behold. There we’re connected in something to love through the sky that can all enfold. Boundaries vanish and strife disappears by assuming perspective grand when together we look at stellar spheres, irrespective of local land. Despite the differences that divide, in surveying the vast beyond our far-reaching purposes are allied so we sense humanity’s bond. Wonders seem endless as vision wanders amidst the scenes sidereal while many a pensive poet ponders how to voice the ethereal. Though troublesome worries may get us down the heavens our spirits uplift in presence of firmament’s jeweled crown of night’s resplendent global gift. When comes the sundown my reveries soar and soft I hear a mounting cry by earthly stargazers from shore to shore, ‘We are one people neath one sky.’ Then all unite in the singular goal of witnessing sights overhead, thus to share their view of the cosmic whole with feelings of oneness o’erspread. ~ Harley White * * * * * * * * * For Global Astronomy Month (GAM) 2020 AstroPoetry ~ penned at the request of Astronomers Without Borders
