Within a Needle's Eye

Of all the stars of Milkey Way
Of all the planets in the sky
And all the universe beyond
Visible within God's eye

In all of space, in all of time
We're here within a needle's eye
Then why is it so difficult
To get together , you and I?

Elizabeth Santos

Well put, Elizabeth... I find myself wondering the same. Sometimes people wait for something to happen that will never happen with mere wishing... Without sincere desire and great effort on both parts, you only get a lot of "might have beens."

anything worth being requires sacrifice...

you can quote me on that one... (remind me I said it every once in a while  )

I really find this beautiful. It says so much in so few words. It reminds me of the movie, 2010. Remember when they look into the monolith and see billions of stars? It's the entire universe of a new creation. That's what I see here in this poem.

Elizabeth,
When I was a child they said because why was a crooked letter.
And now that I am grown I can't think of anything better.

Elizabeth, my friend-
I sure like this.

And Sy ... you heard her,
'Well then, curse them crooked letters!'

Liz, you are a treasure.
