Cobalt and teal, emerald and sage.
Cerulean, indigo, lapis and silver swirl
in a starry night sky close to home.
As the river mirrors the trees that reach across its waters
so do your eyes seem to reflect the wonder of the heavens.
No, it’s far more than just a reflection.
The entire soul of a galaxy has dived right in
and in your little human eyes swims a complete solar system.
I see a Milky Way,
I see a thousand constellations.
Floating near the surface and submerged down below.
I’m in awe of how someone so little
can hold a whole world.
With a galaxy in your eyes you house so many futures.
Which one will be yours?
Or does a part of each of them belong to you?
This galaxy is untouched, untainted.
There have been no regrets, no what ifs, no too lates.
Fear does not cloud them.
Instead they roar,
just a whirlpool of possibilities.
This galaxy is calm and clear,
but I can see a ferocity.
No one can hold the stars without strength.
Be brave my keeper of the galaxies,
for though you have might,
you are home to a wonder of delicate treasures.
