One step

Under the pale light of the moon

After gazing at the distant unfamiliar stars
And imagining our future among them

My eyes stray back down to Earth
And the horizon beckons

Through my mind images flash,
Vibrant cities and dormant country sides

Some part of me goes off beyond
Person to person
World to world

Some people are just coming home
Other’s dream

Smiles dart around
As fast as frowns

Worldly worries and local problems

But these I hardly feel
Because expressions of joy
Displays of love

Drown my senses

Small grins on small faces

A baby’s first giggle
Warmth from a cat

Knowledge of generations
In a young ones mind

Across the planet small worlds awaken
It’s their day now

The horizon calls,

Light shines from beyond,

The darkness hides all obstacles,

I wonder to myself…

What if I took one step?

I really do this, and one day when i’m older, i’ll gaze across the dark landscape… hop on my bike, or a car, or use my feet and just go where ever my feet take me.

P.S. how you should read this is with a pause for thought between each line, when u get lower scroll slowly… it makes more sense then


dream, laugh, world, go, earth, step, wander

I’m crazy, insane, mad, free!

    I can see that you are a fan of the galactic elements such as the moon and stars, since they are heavily reflected in more than one of your poems. it is like you think beyond the atmospheres of the earth. Another beautiful piece by a beautiful lady….lol…great job Ms. Ball

  • Haha ya i’m a sucker for the moon, and i love the sciences of the universe. :) i’ve read some Stephen Hawking books and especially love puzzling over the grandfather paradox and black holes, (i get totally wrapped around them), but i love the beauty of a nebula, and the light of our galaxy.
    I even own a telescope and have seen Jupiter and some of it’s moons up close… oh and i’ve met astronauts too

    But thanks, i wasn’t sure if anyone would get this write. Really it’s a jumble of feelings and thoughts, but one day i really am just gonna get up when it’s dark, pick a direction, and drive or walk that way till dawn and see finally where i end up.
