And so we seek to touch the starsMan has always been fascinated by the stars and the sky—And so we seek to touch the stars by myanko92
the morning and the evening star, the ceaseless walk of the stars in their planes, the timeless and unending glory of it all, the wonder, and the magic—
We walk upon the prosaic earth and look up in awe at the vast expanse of sky
and the glory of the stars wheeling overhead,
and feel a touch of God-like mystery spilling out on us from the shimmering lights above.

Tomorrow Is Never soon EnoughSunrise is a certainty.Tomorrow Is Never soon Enough by stargirl2791
The constant waits beneath the Earth,
as we spin thoughts into the stars
and stare awake at our dreams
flashing by in the neurons of nebulae.
Our luminescent longing burns inside us,
and each moment births another memory
that glows and grows
and waits to reach our eyes
eight minutes and twenty seconds in the future
plus the moonlit hours in between.
Thoughts travel at the speed of light,
our souls singing cosmic songs in harmony,
and for them, time is a whim,
bent to swirl into infinity in a heartbeat.
But for us,
there is the breadth of the nighttime
and the five hundred lonely miles
and the five seconds before you answer your phone
before our voices touch again.
Sunrise can’t come soon enough.
But for now,
we will glide on hope-rays and thought-beams
and land our light in each other’s hearts,
ready for day to break again.
Written November 2013, with a little revision February 2016
Inspired by looking at the evening star shining brilliantly in the sky while the west blended gold-edged dark blue. The sky felt very high and wide and wondrous, and I felt uplifted by a glory I didn’t understand.
By “God-like mystery” I meant a mystery like God is mysterious; a mystery imbued with that same sense of awed wonder and unspeakableness that is one of God’s attributes. I believe that the stars are His works, and so in a small way they are partakers of that characteristic, and that’s why we want to get to know more about them.
An actual haiku this time, again inspired by Ulquihime(c)myanko
A Ulquihime inspired… thing (I was going for a haiku pattern, but forgot what the syllable pattern was)
But it also applies to any relationship where the man is hiding or suppressing (whether consciously or unconsciously) his feelings.
