Poem: Star Gazing

By Dave Hood

On a hot, lazy night in July,
At the cottage, near the lake,
we gaze up, like astronomers,
Into the clear, night sky,
dark as a blackout,
Make mental notes
of twinkling stars,
the big dipper, Milky Way,
faint craters on the moon,
Watch as a shooting star passes,
crosses the sky like a UFO,
Wonder if God was the builder,
who constructed these cosmos,
Without a beginning or end,
wonder if other life forms exist,
somewhere, lightyears away.
