God of All Stars,

Drifting among all
Greatness
Lost like a traveler
Without a map in
An immeasurable universe

Awe crashes
Over my soul
Like waves over
The grains of sands
On far shores that
Fade back through
Synapses
Into the recesses
Of a my only consolation

My soul confronts
Itself in unknowable
Dark lengths filled
With starry heavens
While you, Lord of
This vast silence
Appear in the
Tiniest crack that
Might signal
The gasp
Of my beginning
And end

So I confess
That I dream of wind
Movement of air
Not streams of plasma
Or rotating rings of particles
Around glorious magenta hued orbs
In dreams my hair flows
In the wind
While
White clouds drift
In blue skies
And green grass is soft under foot

If I gasp my end
In this great darkness
May I be added to
All the light
To shine
Softly upon
Upturned faces
Into blue skies
While wind
Sweeps away
Stray hairs
And grass grows
Softly underfoot
