Into Blue

Photo Thanks to Hubble and NASA

Light slides into blue
darkness backdrops stars
I once knew their names
Now I look and marvel
at this sky I can not touch
except with eyes and awe

I saw flashes cross above
pieces of things ending
their journey in flames
and giving them names
adds no greater meaning
to their splendid demise

That’s what I want my
last breath to be
a flash of me
streaking through
this name-filled magic
called life, my light
sliding into blue
