I write what I feel…

Outer Space



In the blackest black

There’s a speck of light

The smallest dot

Or prick of white


Day dusts the dawn

With a rosy hue

The earth looks blue


How trifling we seem

In the scheme of things

Our egos are all

But we are too small –

Important only in our heads

As we lie musing in our beds
