And There Lies Truth


We lie in the dark
and whisper our truths,
when he asks:
What do you see
when you close your eyes?

I see what I have always seen,
I tell him:
a vast expanse of stars,
like static at midnight
only dark and beautiful.

In the morning,
reports from Andromeda
show 100 million truths,
seeds of existence.

I see God,
I tell him.
I see God.

  1. Amazing! Have you seen the photos of the cross sections of Saturn’s rings? Images like this always remind me of how I wondered as a child if we might just be a model of the universe sitting on someone’s desk. Much less important than we thought.
