And So I Stand – A Poem

To see the brilliance
of a million dancing stars
you must sit still,
in the darkness and cold,
and be filled
with wonder and awe and joy.

I want to dance
or lie in the grace
but its dark
so dark you can see,
really see,
only what lies above –
the brilliance
of a million dancing stars.

And so I stand
in the dark and cold
in wonder and awe and joy,
and I raise my head,
stretch open my arms,
and whisper thank you
for the gift of the brilliance
of a million dancing stars.
