Soul Gazing

Positioned beneath a 
Moonless sky
An absence of stars
Weighs heavy
On my mind
For each is a reminder
That life is
Amazingly
Beautiful

And each stills
A worried
Heart

  7. The stars bring a sense of peace in creation and in our souls. The lights in the darkness. Sometimes though we find it hard to see them but if we keep looking for them they appear and are always there even when we fail to see them for a while.
