Headline Poem 7/17/14 -- stargazers

There's a lot going in in the world... particularly violence in Israel and Palestine, so much so that I am unable (tonight at least) to categorize or reflect on it too much. This is an example of a time when I feel completely disconnected and even spoiled. People, children, are dying and I'm drinking Vanilla Lattes. All of this reminds me of the simplicity of stargazing -- where everything is the same size up there regardless of how small things feel down here. 

stargazers 

stargazers seek truth 
   regardless of 
  how small    things    feel 
         down here 
    and 
are 
      willing 
 to breathe in 
     
   the 
       darkness 
in order to
          find it.
