It is late at night
As I look into a crystalline sky
And ponder upon my smallness

I realise the stars are
The music of the universe
I am but one note on the staff

And I am alone

About this poem

Came to me staring at the stars through my holly tree one evening

    A lone star meditating on the multitude of other stars of which, even in its loneliness, is integrally woven together as one celestial family we call the galaxy of The Milky Way.
