Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Everyday Inspiration Day Fifteen: Take a Cue From an Author

on October 19, 2016

Astronomer Carl Sagan wrote,

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”

It could be the most recent moon in the universe
Hiding behind a planet long known.

It might be the shy newly moved-in neighbor
Whose face lights up when I say hello.

The birth of a child whose promise spools forward
Teaches possibilities loving families provide.

The universe is a wide narrative awaiting me
To dip in my pen and write what I see.

  3. Gorgeous, I love the idea of ‘promise spooling forward’, which I think is what your poem encapsulates.
