Star-gaze Poem

In whatever galaxy,
I believe there must be creatures like ourselves,
builders of canoes,
far-scattered eyes moving
against the twinkling darkness of the heavens,
in equivalents of dust,
singers of small laments:
the ones we also know,
so well.

for one such as me
this earth is enough of the possibility of grace.

I step out on my small porch, gaze:

these tiny lights, these beacons, bobbing
so far away in the night
cannot hear their bells
the shallows of the universe.
