Looking Up

On a night that is cloudless

I stand in the garden

Look up into darkness

Into space

Wonder how cheesy is the moon

How creamy the Milky Way

Silently wish upon a falling star

Not thinking how far

Away we are

From someone up there

Looking down

A human on a space station

Orbiting the Earth

Mapping the weather

The beauty of cyclones

Hurricanes and typhoons

Looking into their eyes

Like black holes

With shadows cast

Deep into their vortices

I imagine being up there

Looking down

Into the eyes of the world

Hurricanes from Space
