SIZE DOESN'T MATTER
(10/27/14)


I study
a telescopic
representation
of interstellar
molecular clouds
interspersed
here in there
with bright spots

the beginnings
of new stars

attempting
to relate
to the distances
involved
makes me feel
a bit dizzy

makes me
feel

very

very

small

nonetheless
still
very much alive

I have learned
to appreciate
the miracles
of diminutive existence
about me

I am less
than an amoeba
in relation
to those infernos
of stellar
nurseries

nonetheless
a similar
luminosity
conceives
us all

the same
sparkle
shines through
the darkness
