The Wonders of creation


Have you ever seen the Outback Sky at night,
With myriads upon myriads of stars burning bright?
So clear and close, it seems that you can almost touch,
And hold them, but then it seems too much.

To drink in the whole beauty of that view,
All at once, spreading from sky to earth, a sight so new,
That words cannot express the splendour there,
A carpet high, suspended in the air.

Galaxy upon galaxy, of brilliance, no matter where oneís eyes may roam ,
Filling the sky, an all encompassing dome,
No matter how you may twist and turn in any direction.
The display will cause you to catch your breath, without exception.

Without the stars, darkness would be complete,
A void, with no sense of form or place where sky
and earth do meet
They provide the definitions, that help to guide the eye,
To set parameters, for measuring space and distance by.

The desert sky scintillating, shining bright,
I know of nothing to compare with that brilliant sight,
In quietness there , with no noise to disturb the thought,
I can but marvel on the miracles that Godís handiwork has wrought.
