tiny desk astronomy

on nights like this
I gaze into the night-sky
to see a sky filled with
desk lamps in the dark
casting light for one
tired poet after another
milky ways of metaphors
supernovas of near misses
swirling star-clouds
of what matters most

But it's still a wonderful universe, a wodnerful night sky, isn't it?

Yes, Glynn, it is.

A link to this poem was posted in a comment on the poem I posted this morning -- and I'm so glad I clicked over; this is lovely.
