Thoughts on space, after watching a Professor Brian Cox lecture.
If I; with Hubble’s patient eye could gaze, into the deep beyond.
Past the stars we see, to pull aside that curtain of darkest black.
What wonders I imagine, wait to reveal themselves to me?
Only then, to still my voice, have me sit in silent awe.
And, if a vision beyond words, fortune where to unveil.
Then; in all honesty, there it would it have to stay.
Unless of course, a Shakespeare should happen along,
to lend a quill or a few chosen words.
Maybe then I would try my hand at a sonnet, perhaps a song.
Still, here I stand on dirt, above, below, amid.
The Milky-Way and other such things
I try, but fail to comprehend.
And so, I like to let myself, imagine if I could.
With Hubble’s patient eye, I could gaze,
Into that deep beyond.
