““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

To make sense of this universe we must use every sense. To me, that just makes sense. But I am just one.
