<< Each star has a name
and he knows them all.
That Majestic Stargazer
has his weights and measures,
counting our days and sparrows falling
Designed a wardrobe for the lilies
and the whole of nature's fashion parade.   
Grand design indeed
Rise and fall, birth and death
the in and out of every breath;
the timeless twinkle of distant stars
light years away.   
Even in deathly silence
the noise of atoms dancing;
of blood rushing in the veins;
thoughts searching for a resting place

A creaking as of ancient doors
as light comes seeping through
and every shade and hue
grows brighter in the perfect light of day.
