Destiny Came Knocking… #Poetry

Sailing through the universe, 
      searching for the stone of destiny
Over dark tides, through the spiral arms of the Milky Way
Pulsing gas giants blind you with colour, their majesty
Home, left so far behind, a speck in my mind’s eye
Illuminated by memory, the blue ball keeps spinning
Stars fall, like giant rocks lit by a trail of fire
Taking time to marvel at the hand of God
 inside my chest my heart swells with the beauty,
         ribbons of colour to turn the mind over, 
Collecting my breath with ever colour changing gas clouds
Away beyond infinity all things merge, making new wonders
Tying the universe together like one giant playground
Ending my journey back home, 
      where the stone lay beneath my feet
Destiny came knocking at my own back door…

Flying stars, white-hot flash
against an ink-filled sky
the milky way magic
dark mountain lights
velvet blue path leads where
mysteries to be found
Will you walk there with me?
find a new home
let the stars shine long after
traces of us are dust
we left our mark on stone
not all will turn…
