Into the Depths

To live beside the sea
is to be with change,
the tidal rise and fall,
the night sky dark with clouds
when suddenly the dome opens
and the Milky Way arcs
from pole to pole
with distant suns shining,
softening me into forgiveness
as the hard edges dissolve
into the depths of darkness,
released like a falling star.

    Intimacy comes to mind in my gratitude for this poem, Don, and for the night skies I was privileged to know intimately, as I navigated by their trustworthy direction from Great Britain to New Zealand. Thank you kindly.
