From the concerned eye above,

our planet curves bright against

the background black of space

and shimmers with the thin rare

blue of air that keeps abundant life

cycling across eons, times and days.


And from this hovering eye we see the planet

alone in space, moving in its quiet order

that has always been, and we realise that

this most precious spinning thing holds our

chance to bring our meanings dear into the 

cosmic void filled with expanding nothingness.
