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.
