The eye in the sky
A veil of darkness is falling on my day,
My body all weariness, my mind total emptiness.
Lost on a lonely mental road, I send out a “Mayday!”
No shortcuts to be found, I am the average Roy Thines.
Lids closed, palms down, I take a breath,
All ears for the daily lesson: Learning to fly.
Grateful and relieved, I gaze at it from my bed of death,
Shining like a supernova: The eye in the sky!
As it seems, we recently found another “farthest galaxy in the universe“, courtesy of the Hubble Telescope pushing its new mirrors to their limits.
This triggers a few daytime cosmic visions: I close my eyes, let the semi-darkness settle, and starts enjoying the ballet of dancing particles. Retinal impressions! I blink and spawns new galaxies and supernovae across the maelstrom. I parse improbable skies with my closed eyes, and end up realising that it’s the other way around: There is an eye in the sky!
