Is There Anybody Out There?


Is there Anybody Out There?

Gazing blissfully at the night sky
A million million pinpricks of light
Are visible to my eye
As they brighten the night

Unaware of the time
Mind pondering
The vastness of the of nighttime

Overcome by the majesty
Of the galaxy
Feelings of smallness wash over me

Standing small and alone
I intone
Is there anybody out there?
