Universe Above

A poem by Isabelle Sorrells


How I wish to see the stars

How I wish to see the cosmos stretch out before me

As an ocean without bottom.

It is a sad thing

Knowing that once it was available to all the world

But now confined to various parts of it,

The few places humans do not populate

and our light does not outshine it.

I search wherever I go for an opening into the sky –

Have found only one.

Where shall I go?

Where can I run to

To see the universe above?
