Open spaces

Open Spaces

Out here
you can
set down
all of the
world’s burdens.

Take comfort
in a blanket
of solitude
wrap yourself up
in the quiet.

When I look at the map
crystal clear
in my minds’ eye
it is a constellation
not a super highway.

Our solar system
Even in its vastness
Encompasses everything
connecting us all
to the night sky.

Peering up I see
the open spaces
between the stars
Is that so the milky way
can breathe?
