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

But from outer space

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

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  1. If we realize that even our planet is but a grain of sand in relationship to the vastness of the universe perhaps our individual grandiosity will be taken down a notch.

  2. In the big scheme of things, we are as significant as an ant or a grain of sand, but we all have an important role to play here. Lovely writing, adee. 😉
