Star Light

Star Light Imagine the light from the stars that we see were merely a glimpse of what heaven will be. The tiniest windows of light we are shown, drawing our eyes to the place we call home. Picture a vision of perfect white light, no sun for the day or moon of the night. Just cascades of light of none you have known, in heavenly form only souls can be shown. The glory of God so great and immense, the stars are like pin holes for light so intense. They glisten and sparkle, like beacons we're drawn piercing the skies through the nights darkest dawn. With only the faith of a mustard size seed We've claim to His Son's saving grace. But blackness of night shrouds the light of the day and faith's left with fear in its place. Over glorious triumph of darkest despair His mighty hand scattered night skies with glimpses of heaven that we call the stars, our windows of mustard seed size.

Thanks, SKAT. I like this one because it wakes up the imagination. As children, we are in a perpetual state of wonder and hope. Sadly, that leaves us with age and reality. I guess I just wanted to capture a moment of it, like a snapshot, and share it.

Because I have a cherry blossom limp light, with blue Xmas lighting intertwined; I'd sit and watch, wondering of the night sky and shape of major constellations. I enjoyed your poem making me wonder further. Peace and blessings.
