The Pillars of Creation

I dream of a stranger travelling into deep space

And find myself in an amazing place

I find myself in the heart of the Eagle Nebula

Among the star forming nursery

Gazing at the ‘Pillars of Creation’

These are the true foundations

Of the universe and cosmic realms

And as I sail like a ship I am at the helm

In awe of all that can be seen

The wonder of this majestic scene

And I realise how little we know

And how insignificant we seem

All we can ever do is hope to dream

Sparking lights from the new formed stars

Light up this galactic scene

And leaves me thinking how unlikely it is

To think about travelling universally

Except in dreams.
