In troubled times as these

I like to step outside

In the middle of the night

To study the moonless sky

I take some comfort in the stars

For they are at a safe distance

At least for now

Hhhmmm...yet again, your poems leave me with food for thought. The last two lines of this poem is most striking... and yes, i wonder when will the stars NOT be at a safe distance to us . Or are the stars a metaphor for something like security and peacefulness ? Smilesz. Thanxs for sharing these Stars, terry. Take care....hope u re doing fine/
