STATIC
One Million Stars  (E)
Theater of the night.
#2035884 by Don Two


Write about the universe and the stars.

I look into the sky at night,
And from beneath Earth's oxygen ocean,
I see stars twinkling beautifully bright,
Which puts my thoughts in motion.

I watch the stars and I wonder:
What planets are warmed by their fires?
What lifeforms on those planets wander?
Do those forms build civilization's spires?

There are over a million stars,
In the Milky Way Galaxy alone.
How can I believe this planet of ours,
Is the only one that to life gives a home?

I look into the sky at night,
I give thanks to the Creator,
For the Holy Spirit's light,
Revealed through Baha'u'llah's scriptures.

The scriptures of the Pen of Glory1,
Inspire many of the poems I write,
Poems that I dedicate to God's glory.

Life is the Rule2

"...know thou that every fixed star hath its own planets, and every planet its own creatures, and every planet its own creatures, whose number no man can compute."
Baha'u'llah

In this boundless universe
each galaxy revolves,
while beneath their stars
intelligence evolves.

The planets of each system
are blessed with a variety of life,
and God in His wisdom
aids each creature in its strife.

From the smallest one celled creature
upon the planet Earth,
to the largest multicellular animal
that a distant star gave birth:
                             Life is the rule in the Universe.
