‘Skies of a Child’ by Jerri Hardesty The Society April 6, 2014 Beauty, Poetry, Science 6 Comments I love to gaze into the midnight sky To search the night for planets and bright stars, Caress, with pointing finger, blazing Mars, And blow a kiss to Venus passing by. I wonder and I ponder other beings, Perhaps now casting eyes at Milky Way, Their far-off planet turning into day, While Saturn hula-hoops its frosty rings. As I look up and they look up, who knows If somehow we could touch each others thought? Imagination percolates and grows While squinting at a distant glowing dot. At edge of consciousness, awareness flows, A loophole glimpse that time and space forgot. Jerri Hardesty is a poet living in Brierfield, Alabama. Featured Image: Photo of Milky Way.
