Sometimes I Like To Get Out Of The Car And Look At The Stars

Getting out of my car
I stop and admire the stars
Dotted around
Glistening like jewels
Suspended in the inky blackness
Disappearing into forever
The dark engulfing me
A nice kind of dark that feels so full of love
I feel like I’m home
There is a deep recognition inside of me
There is a sense of infinity
A deep knowingness
My place in this universe
The stars twinkling
Beckoning me
It fills me with wonder
And questions
Where do I come from?
Why do you feel so far?
Yet I feel closer to something?
That’s also inside?
Locating myself
In time and space
The stories around myself collapse
The qualms of the mind silence
It’s just me and the universe
In this blackness
And infinity
There is a safety
A feeling of being held
I belong here
This is my forever home
Here in nature
The trees in shadow
Only seen as silhouettes
Against the night sky
They whisper
They are on their own journey at this time
The energy of nature
Feels different at night
There’s an aliveness to it
That fills me with excitement
Maybe they too
Are having a dance with the universe
I look back at the stars
Wondering about each one’s story
How they came to be
What they may tell us
What wisdom they may hold
The night sky so full
Of dreams and possibilities
Everything’s so still
And silent around me
It is quiet
At night
I feel I begin here
But looking up
There is no end
Yet there are things up there I may touch
Secrets to be revealed
Waiting silently
For our own awakening
And also for when it is time
To leave this earth
For our next transition
In our existence
Our next phase in our soul journey
Returning home to the stars
So beautiful
The stars smile down at me…
Until we meet again
