The Vastness

Orion

The Writer, Vernon Wade

Vernon Wade is a poet, author and freelancer. He has been published in The Gorge Literary Journal, Dualsport Rider Magazine, Hack’d Magazine, The Sidecarist, ROB Magazine and The Hood River News.

The world fills him with wonder.  When he looks at the sky he is lifted into flights of fancy, when he stares at the earth he is drawn beneath its surface. He is delighted to find the macrocosm and the microcosm equally mesmerizing.

Wide awake

Staring into the vastness

The firmament filled with flickering lights

Clouds roll in from the west

Extinguishing the stars

Each in turn

Like the candles on the alter

At the close of service

I am left

Alone in the dark

Waiting for the sun
