Some Think it is Nonsense

““In truth each day is a universe in which we are tangled in the light of stars.”- Horses, Jim Harrison


Oh to hear melodious sound
No bitter aftertaste be found

Inhale breaths pure of toxicity
Oh to behold what few can see within this celestial arena and nebulous sea

Oh that I could touch what ancestors held
But they too did learn like me as well

Stars veer not from a steadfast course
Nor night sky weep in cruel remorse

Each drips light whether great or small
Only One light outshines them all

Oh that all may learn one day to see
With every sense so all may be

Vindicated Tuesday prompt. Choose one from 8 lines from the work of Jim Harrison. Use the line as an epigraph to the poem of my choice.
To make sense of this universe we must use every sense. To me, that just makes sense. But I am just one.
