A field of stars

by Josh Stone

On a precipice of faith stands I
Small staring at the stars
Those fiery souls who light my sky and
Cast shadows onto brightest doubts
They are my friends and I
Will be among them soon
Without fear to hinder
Or dread to send my path askew

Through those stars will I roam
Purple plumes of gas giants
In those carbon fields will I graze
Spending each breath among the grains of life
Who so selflessly fill the sky with splendor
