Above the Nothingness

Such stars
wait there
where darkness seems
to offer up no hints of light

brazen beacons
blaring signs
may blur or blind our better sight.

In time
your eyes
should wind their way
above the nothingness of night

when they reach
the heavenly
see what was hidden, dim, or slight:

above all sense
whence mortal dreams
seek deathless flight.
