Our Home

Stumble toward the light
Reach for it
Grasp at sunbeams
That have traveled empty space
To fall upon your outstretched hand.
That still have the power to burn.
Emerge from shadow
Find the world as it once was
Before the coming of darkness
Spinning with chaos and beauty
Are they the same thing?
Behind you stretches consciousness
An unbroken stream
Rushing to the mountaintops.
Beyond you is the world
Pale blue dot among the stars
The only home we ever knew.
