smallness

tonight
under these stars
brushed
by this tender breeze
the smallness
in me
trembling
i feel the earth
beneath
my feet
and know
that I stand
on a tiny sphere
held
in delicate balance
by these
far-off stars
so distant
so small
and yet
my very breath
is given space
by these
a thousand candles
in this
the cathedral vault
of
the universe
illuminating
the holy
sanctuary
of the sky
