A Quieter Universe
Dark night, I know you.
Your secret world around me is God's manifested peace.
In the opaque silence your new moon lends a quieter universe.
Where are your breezes and your wild birds calling?
Where are your distant sounds of life?
Are they all vanished with the sun, which hangs there below my horizon,
In the final moments of resistance to its falling slumber?
Do they sleep with the banished moon?
Dark night, drop here beneath us,
Spreading your arms across all that we've been given.
We welcome the restful haven of nature's sleep.
Land your rocket ship under the trees.
Turn your telescope to the stars
And fade into the landscape
As the night spins over our heads on our journey to morning.

Gazing at the Day Star
Can you gaze upon the day star, spinning past, spinning past?
Do you look upon the sun as he treks his journey beyond?
Does he take the scenic route, as he courses through the sky?
Does he strain to see the landmarks raised by the earthkind down below?
If mortal or immortal eye, spinning past, spinning past...
Can gaze abroad from sunbeams as he treks his journey beyond;
Does he see our answering glow, as we’re coursing through his light?
Do we aid his view of mileposts aligned by our Maker out beyond?
Could it be that distant orb, spinning past, spinning past...
Can see us not at all as he treks his journey beyond?
Is it among the beacon stars he steers, as coursing through the ether dim?
Do his beams discern the cosmos ruled by our Regent there afar?
What if that beacon daystar, spinning past, spinning past...
Is lit by the hand of God as we trek our journey here beyond?
Was it for a glance at us, as we course through space and time?
Does He with piercing longing gaze at all earthkind here below?
See the Day Star now as life's spinning past, spinning past?
Can you see Jesus’ eyes ‘like lamps of fire,’ as you trek your journey here beyond?
Is it only for the view you hold, as coursing through the sky you spin?
Or is it by His light you glimpse the eternal blueprint in your soul?

A Thousand Eternities
Worship springs from my heart;
When a cool mist sprays from the sea beneath.
As the pink sun falls out of the sky above,
And the moon shines languidly overhead;
It is a vision of a thousand eternities.

The Keeping of the Stars
* 8 **~* Light glowing orbs dancing, spinning
Luminescent fiery sentinels keeping time as they watch.
What are they watching, those glowing lights in the heavens,
With their connect-the-dot stick figures,
Resembling the art of a preschooler?
Those stars are burning inside-outside their nuclear hearts,
On fire with God’s Word,
Set ablaze by the spoken creative act of the Creator on Day four…
And yet before you and I on day six. *88***~**
