I thought this would go well with this week’s post about the Milky Way (Finding Mystery)! It was written during that time in my life when I was constantly stealing away to my parents’ back yard to lie enraptured under the stars. Enjoy!

And my dreams awaken
As each star appears
And forms the detail of my thoughts.
And meet me here
While the quiet of the earth
Surrounds me like harmony.
There’s nothing between us but the sky.
But what a veil
With which You cover Your glory!
Is this merely a taste?
How can I lie beneath
The splendor of the Heavens,
And then realize I’ve only reached
The threshold of Your majesty?
But it’s a good start.
I’ll hold my breath and wait for You to breathe.
I’ll close my eyes and imagine what can be.
I’ll open my heart and let You fill me once more,
O Lover of my soul!
Can we meet tonight?
