Spiritual Poem about Nature

Hope In The Darkness

Stars are really captivating for me. When I was writing this poem, I was amazed by the stars and how there was light even in the darkness. I wondered if maybe the reason for the night sky is to shield our eyes from the light of heaven that is so bright; it would blind us, but the stars poke holes in the sky so we can still see heaven. I love how stars shine the brightest during the night. The same goes for hope. In the middle of a hopeless situation, hope shines like stars in the night sky.

I really enjoyed this poem. The perception of the stars being pinpoints into heaven...just a glimpse into what lies ahead. I love this thought and I will never forget it.

In order for the stars to shine,
The sun must go to rest,
For only in the darkness can
You see the light the best.

But the night sky separates our eyes
From light that would make us blind,
And what we call stars poke holes in this sheet
To reveal some of heaven behind.

The night sky simply shields our eyes
From what they cannot bear,
But we are allowed a glimpse of hope
In a time of great despair.

And as heaven pours out itself,
We see not endless void,
But rather, a glimpse of never-ending
Peace and love and joy.

Praise be to God, who spoke the stars
That illuminate the night,
For they are proof that even in
The darkness, there is light.
