Starlight from the Heavens

a thread of that
from the very first invocation,
shines from the realm of infinity
to the shores of our consciousness.

vibrant mystery,
shimmering and reverberant through time;
it is a song we strive to comprehend.

shining from the far distant nebulae,
sings through the darkness
and through all the nights of our soul,
filling, filling, filling all with song
and the sound of brightness as it goes.

illumines a path in the desert places,
inspires us to guide our feet rightly,
and enlivens our lives with song.

From first utterance to the present day,
light has been witness to all creation;
light has explored the known and unknown,
light has filled the dark places;
light sings, bearing the good news
that all of existence, even the darkness,
is good and beautiful and worthy of love.
