Amongst the stars

The silence
deafening in its nature,
silky stars light the blanket
of midnight darkness
a thousand diamonds
hosting brilliant beams,
slipping me in to their warm cocoon
yet still cold I float
amongst the stars
searching for signs
of life.
Bluest of blue spread before me
and the movement of a small lizard piques the awareness
its breath a subtle in to out
as it watches me watching it,
his mission perhaps to sidetrack the mind,
turning my gaze back
knowing there is more to see
beyond the reality before me
dotted landscape drawing me in
to float in the ether
of now.
Ripples lull the senses
and the distant bird call breaks the air,
silence a word now passed
I listen for the sounds
of blinking satellites that slide before my eyes,
movement slow and steady
the red sky beacon breaks the beauty
and I reach out to bat it away,
a mosquito or insect breaking my thoughts
of this zen-like mojo moment,
I breathe in and close my eyes
to remember the time in seconds
when peace stood still for me
and I felt its warm embrace,
knowing I could not fall while held
as I became one with the way
and the blues and purples meshed
into the shroud of heaven
and for just that second I smiled,
knowing this was just another sign
of being lost in time.

  1. Lovely meditation on just being here. Do you find, in that state, that all that happens is part of the whole? Like the mosquito, and the bird singing. Not outside of my your experience but part of it? 😊

  6. hey there super S, going to be by shortly to visit, busy week but off today and tomorrow, yay, no oranges in my yard but my bananas are growing nicely….been very dry down here (too dry) but went for a long bike ride, readjusting my muscles to the new exercise routine and later swimming. Always in the clouds, you know me, good to be back my friend, hope you’re keeping warm up there in your neck of the city ❀

  7. Always refreshing to hear your words of personal peace and joy
    We need more of it & less about who said what to whom
    Good Morning Kim
    I hope all is well
    Down where oranges
    Grow like trees
    And a belief of
    Roots to withstand
    As Sheldon Always
