Starlight (an acrostic poem)

Standing in a drizzle of ancient photons

Thinking of the vast distances they had traveled

Announcing their presence on my retina

Revealing their origin in the universe

Losing myself in that moment

I lay back opening my parched eyes

Gazing even deeper back in time

Hoping one day I could gaze so far back

That I could see the birth of my atoms
