I Saw the Universe

I can see the cerulean blue of the skies

Or the indigo of the night

I can see the stars wink, the grin of the moon

During the changes of it's monthly face

**

I am in awe

**

I see the sun on it's annual trek

Alternately awakening the life in the earth

And then fading away to allow it to sleep

Until the next spring

**

I am told the Universe is "out there"

Beyond those stars, moon and sun,

Yet the power of what I can see

Is a fathoming beyond my comprehension

**

I am in awe

**

"Out there" no time, no seasons pass

No sense of age, hatred or loss exist

Only the infinity

0f the Universe

**

What IS "out there"?

What IS the Universe that has no end?

What IS the power that creates all this?

I want to see it too

**

And then I remember.....

**

I saw it once, this gift of glimpse

In the eyes of a granddaughter five minutes old

As I held her to my heart and gazed

Into the depths of eternal wisdom and love

**

It was but a moment

Before the bonds of her earthly body

Began to pull her

To her purpose of this lifetime

**

But from that instant I knew

The Universe is everywhere Love exists

Each one of us carries

The Universe in our soul

**

It is not "out there, but "in here"

And can be glimpsed in the

Eyes of a newly born child

As she shares the messsage she brings

of Universal Love.

**

I am in awe

Barbara Kingsolver's latest is more polemic than poetry
The Seattle Times
“Unsheltered” is an ambitious addition to Kingsolver's work and a pointed call for the liberal values she holds dear. It will appeal to her loyal followers but probably not to those she hopes to convert.
