Under the Milky Way


Lying on a patchwork quilt

Away from city lights; a silvery night

Under a luminous band

Naming constellations

Ten thousand reminders

Over me; proof that we

Have an inheritance uncorruptible

Under God's creation

Cleaner, I'm sorry I missed your comment till now. Computer problems. Thank you for stopping by. I will take your advice. I am reminded every day of love and life's beautiful blessings.

Stessily, Yes, the miraculous night sky is powerful. How can one look at it and not feel the power of God and renew our faith in the scriptures.

I too, remember the first time I saw the big dipper. It's still there. Steady and reassuring.

Oh Sunnie, I'm like you. I miss hubs all the time. But if ever I do, I'm always thinking of you.

Thanks, chicken lady

anndavis25, Beautiful photo, beautiful poem! A clear night sky recalls for me this promise: "But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust does corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal" (Matthew 6:20).

I have never forgotten the thrill of being awakened to a night sky sparkling with stars and seeing the Little Dipper, completely, for the first time in my life. A breathtaking beauty which is bestowed freely night after night across the millennia.

Well done.

That's right. Who could look up and see that, and not be overcome with wonder, and know there is something bigger than you and I. Thanks, Sky.

Well done and very thoughtful. This I am sure of when it says: The earth the lords and its fullness thereof. Knowing he is my father , there are no boundaries.

Well done Ann!

I cannot tell you how many times I have spent staring up at those constellations, and how many times it helped me to find answers in the fog. Jamie

A very tranquil piece of poetry. With an excellent choice of photo to accompany your work.

anndavis25 (author) from Clearwater, Fl. on February 17, 2012:

You're on, Donna. I love the night sky too. You know what I do sometime? My son lives in Memphis. I live in Florida. That big old moon is so far away, but it's the same moon there as here. We go outside and enjoy the moon together. Lol. True!

anndavis25 (author) from Clearwater, Fl. on February 17, 2012:

Thanks for the up vote....Have a happy day. Ann

anndavis25 (author) from Clearwater, Fl. on February 17, 2012:

scratch that 'mature'. It would be 'old'. I introduced Sarah to Abraham. Don't explore my stuff, I'm a kindergartener compared to you.... Thanks for comment.

anndavis25 (author) from Clearwater, Fl. on February 17, 2012:

Ashish, they are really stars. And actually, they are much prettier than that picture. Hope you get to witness it. Just go out (way out) in the country away from city lights, and observe the silvery sky. Come again.

anndavis25 (author) from Clearwater, Fl. on February 17, 2012:

anndavis25 (author) from Clearwater, Fl. on February 17, 2012:

Thanks, Reynold. I noticed you haven't written a hub lately. Get the cob webs out. I know you have something to share.

Reynold Jay from Saginaw, Michigan on February 17, 2012:

Very well done. The photo is so nice, I'll simply sit and look at that and ponder the meaning of life.

Dave Mathews from NORTH YORK,ONTARIO,CANADA on February 14, 2012:

anndavis: what a cute poem thank you, but I always thought that a "Milky Way" was a chocolate bar. Ha ha ha!

I know Bobbi. We did the same thing. I saw it, but I didn't believe it. Wasn't is awesome, and to top it off we picked out the Big dipper, and saw shooting stars. I loved it. I will never forget it. God put on a show.

anndavis25 (author) from Clearwater, Fl. on February 13, 2012:

Velvet, thanks for stopping by. Please come again.

anndavis25 (author) from Clearwater, Fl. on February 13, 2012:

Yes Dim, and the number of hairs on our head. What an awesome God. Thank for reading.....

Barbara Purvis Hunter from Florida on February 13, 2012:

Ann,

That was an awesome poem, and it reminded me of all the nights when we as teenagers did the same thing. Up high on a hill, as we sat on a blanket looking up at the stars, talking--- way past the time we should--- be home.

Thanks for sharing this with us.

Bobbi

velvet53 from Pueblo, Colorado on February 13, 2012:

What a beautiful poem and picture.

Dim Flaxenwick from Great Britain on February 13, 2012:

This is one of the most stunning nightime pics I´ve ever seen.

Yes your poem says it all. (and to think the bible says Almighty God knows each of the stars by name???)

Beautiful.
