Nighttime Understanding

Seeing a sky with a roof of clouds

makes me wonder.

I think about our relations with the stars. 

Are we the ones trapped on this earth by the clouds

and the stars the ones who roam free in the unknown universe?

Or are we the ones who get to experience the complexity of this planet

while stars are floating forever in darkness?

And then I see the moon.

It shines brighter than any star, lighting up the roof of clouds. 

And I realize

that the moon is our connection to the cosmos. 

We are not trapped and the stars are not free.

Our two worlds exist in one

forever blending heaven and Earth.
