a glimpse of starlight



 images via


a glimpse of starlight
i saw beyond the clouds
far away, yet visible
sparkling, yet dim
dancing, yet fixed
how is this possible?

a glimpse of starlight
i saw beyond the clouds
tiny points of light
but in reality,
swirling galaxies
how is this possible?

a glimpse of starlight
i saw beyond the clouds
it reminded me of us
tiny, yet cherished
billions, yet named
how is this possible?

a glimpse of starlight
i saw beyond the clouds
and it gave me hope
becuase i know their Creator
and He is mine too
how is this possible?

























just like the starlight
it's possible
because He creates
and sustains
and loves
forever

even the stars
even us
He made it possible
forever

  1. Wow, beautiful poem Emily! I've always loved stars and it's so mind blowing that God knows each of them by name! The Bible verse goes perfectly along with it :).
    (by the way the pictures are beautiful, showing the stars so clearly).
    I can't see the stars as clearly where I live now but they are always beautiful just the same.

    1. Thank you! No, the photos are courtesy of unsplash.com. I wish I had a camera like that, though. Thanks for stopping by!

    2. Oh ok! Ya I totally get the camera thing; as a photographer myself, I understand the difficulty of taking pictures of the universe... its definitely something intricate and detailed.
      No problem! You have a lovely blog!

  4. This is so beautiful, Emily! I loved your comparison--
    "it reminded me of us
    tiny, yet cherished
    billions, yet named"
