    I Practice Moving Meditation Amongst the Heavens

    My childhood is fading behind me, still I hold onto a fascination that is ageless; while lying prone with back indented into a bed of grass I play in the heavens.

    Counting bright lights held in suspended animation is a mystery to the mind.

    Occasionally I recognize the constellations, however my thoughts wonder in the vastness.

    I cannot know with certainty that I have not gazed upon the same bright spheres some nights before – or if there are missing lights that are no more.

    The space far above the clouds is a place to get lost in the obscurity of centuries of creation, playing tag with the possibilities of the unforeseen.

    With imagination it is easy to connect the dots, captivated in watching monsters and angels dance above.

    There are few things of this existence more magical than noticing your breath stolen as you stare upon a sky that is filled with galaxies that reach past our human mentality.

    I will practice this moving meditation amongst the heavens as long as I have sight and recollection; an eternally grateful spectator to the perpetual imprints of time.

    ...with ground beneath my spine I look into the stars as far as the naked eye can see.

    I wonder if it would be at all possible to lye under a glass, while on your back in the grass, if one could take a marker, and connect all the stars (just for fun) making a nexus. I just wonder...thanks to you. It was lovely.



    Contemplative thought for playing tag with the stars. Thank you

    Like an out of body experience! I remember lying on top of the barn at night and watching the stars come out at night. Venus, always the most colorful still is oneof my favorites. Took me on a trip to my own past. Made me feel sentimental. I enjoyed it. Write on......



    One can see past the planets into heaven on a clear summers night - thank you

    Jeff, this is wonderfully crafted. A masteriece, composed by mystical phrases that reach deep within the reader's mind and soul. It brought back memories that were hidden for me. Awesome job!



    Poetry is such a tool for releasing emotions or for capturing experiences in time. I am always glad to share, a piece becomes extra special when someone else can fully relate. Thank you.

    The wonders cloud watching and star gazing offer are limitless when you allow your mind to go and your thoughts and imagination to flow freely. Many times these are the moments which spark inspiration within me. Great write.



    When you look into the sky you never see the exact same picture twice. Thank you for taking in the view!

    Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
