Meditation on Space

Lisa Cox

Drift up to Hubble
With me
Look through the lens
At the speed of light
We find ourselves
Floating
In a birthplace
Of stars
Dark silence
Holds us while
Light seeps
In between every
Atom of who we
Are and were
And shall be
The silence is
Alive with the
Energy of light
And dark and
The movement of
Exploding stars transferred
Through our very molecules
Vibrating and ringing
In profound resonance
With the beginning and
Ending of everything
Beyond our conscious
Imaginings lay the
Regions of the our
Soul’s destiny
We bath in the light
Of a million stars and in
This vast quietness
Ringing with birth
And death and life
Everything we are
Made of passes by
And through in
The time it takes
For a synapse to fire
And so draw a breath
Come back to Hubble
Back to Earth
Back to blue skies
And await night
For the cosmos
To once again unfold
