The stargazers

Fiddling with dials,
Twiddling fingers
Night after night,
Immersed in numbers

Starry backdrops
Ever-changing
Centuries zooming past,
Time travelling.

Destining lives,
At inception of souls
Heavenly immortality
Or black hell-holes

Some put faith in fate,
The stars know; and so we gaze.

This is my reponse to the very first gargleblaster challenge over at Yeahwrite. We have to answer the question in 42 words exactly, and the question was:

What’s so amazing that keeps us stargazing?

 

 

 

And I love this challenge already, it’s fun!
