How Far, How Deep
By Stefanie A. Shilling

my naked eye
is blessed to see
so many stars
an umbrella over me

there are countless more
beyond my sight
knowing they exist
a mysterious delight

when my hands dare reach
for that faraway star
gravity holds
my feet to the fire

what would that star feel like
in my hand
against my skin
tucked in my shoe or back pocket
or pressed under my chin

the closest I’ve come
to knowing infinity
is looking out at the ocean
imagining beyond this vicinity

mmmm, the silence of space
the complete absence of sound
but it’s the rhythmic waves
that hold my feet to the ground
