In honor of Earth Day 2013 and the recent tragic events in Boston, USA I offer you these thoughts:
When the questions are too big,
and the answers are not yet in time,
I look to the sky
In starlight there are answers
to newer, older unframed questions.
Ancient light, our reassurance,
emitted with or without hope,
to be caught by a loving, skyward eye.
