When the Heavens Explode

“We all shine on…like the moon and the stars and the sun…we all shine on…come on and on and on…” 
― john lennon

I heard the stars singing last night, an ancient lullaby
sharing their mystical wisdom from high in the nightwind sky

They sang to me their sorrow of man’s refusal to believe
how his actions are harming the earth, and the universe we see

For every action has a reaction like dominoes tumbling down
when you set one in motion, yes the world will still turn around

But the deepest question my friends we should all be thinking of
Will we be around to see it when the heavens explode above?

  1. Good question….I so love the lines about hearing the stars singing…….maybe a lullaby because they know we are all asleep down here. I love the reference to the state of the world. A ruly wonderful poem.
