She was Sky

When she was sky, their eyes held awe and fear Meek worship of her chariots of sun To her magnificence, they kneel, undone On stone's sacrificial alter, revere When she was heaven, paved in streets of gold Preachers promised cleansed blood of sin, redeem Salvation's ladder lift devout's esteem Confession's coin, price of paradise sold Now she is space astronauts navigate Pure mathematical mystery explores Modern Magellans map celestial shores Lissome light's infinite answers await. 8/16/19 Writing Challenge 2 - August 2019 Enclosed Rhyme Sponsor: Dear Heart
