Twinkles

The skyline is lit up like the stars it hides. So instead of looking up we are looking forward.  Instead of staring with our heads tilted wondering about humans’ place in the world and the vastness of the universe, we marvel at our own work and the vastness of ourselves.

We are disillusioned.  We are so small. If you need proof, think of all the lights you cannot see, the ones that find their home beyond our world. Not the ones stitched together with bricks and mortar and illuminated by electricity. Think of the stars.

When I see the buildings twinkle, I know they are only the charm of an imposter. They’re winking at us. Pleased and proud, like the fraudulent jeweller, they have us fooled.

One thought on “Twinkles

  1. Is there life on other planets? I like to think so, if we’re the only life form then someone screwed up, badly. Would I like to meet someone from a distant galaxy? Already have, his name was David and he was divine. An alien living among us who showed us what could be, and changed our lives and perspective forever, RIP Mr Jones.
