Star Nurseries

God promises Abraham 
posterity more than sands 
of all the seas, 
and the Father of Nations 
asks who they will be.
The answer glows
in stars of glory,
some appearing small 
as specks of golden dust 
that will float in the beam 
of morning as it
enters his finite tent
and shines upon the bed
where Isaac will be born.
Tonight my children sleep.
I dim the lamp, pass 
through quiet, humble doors
to ponder points of light.
I search the sky for galaxies
where stars are formed,
other stellar nurseries.
