Blue Little Marble


In that blue little marble
My son saw swirls
Of stars.


To me it was opaque;
Opacity in things
Halts understanding.


Who is gazing
Through the marble
Of the universe?

    Very beautiful poem. It is true said, child's innocent eye it will look like Swirls of Stars.
    Sometimes child's eyes see better than our opaque covered eyes. I loved reading each lines.

    There is so much beauty to behold in the billions of little things all around us. If we can only see what children see that we would have less fantasy and more reality. Well done my friend! (Report) Reply
