Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery



The horizon slowly fades from view

And mountain silhouettes slip into obscurity

A dark sky of hidden stars now dominates

Blocked by the overpowering lights of the city


At one time my eyes easily captured

The vast foreverness of the twinkling gems

Reminders to all onlookers

That light in darkness is ever present


I recall the cold metal of an open truck bed

Delighted by each falling star

Awed by the reminder

Of just how small we really are

The stars reached down and I reached up

Two separate realms connected

Staring so hard that the tiny lights blurred

As if the black night no longer existed


The stargazer I once was lives on

Mostly inside memories and imaginings

Upon captured images

And written paintings


My view’s different now, the glimmer I know is man made

Bright and filled with colorful variety

Glowing lights mix with heat and gasses

Creating movement, life, passion and fury


I’m witness to nighttime accents

Until daylight hours return

Another horizon breaks with its illuminated glow

And mountain silhouettes are once again…granted the light for which they’ve yearned
