299,792,458 m/s

Spent a few nights

away from the lights

of the city. 

The stars told me

how our ancestors

created the gods. 

I could not fathom, 

with my head tilted back, 

anything but awe

and introspection. 

Imagining a time before knowledge

I felt certain

that faith had its beginnings

as a hedge

against fear

and solitude.
