When I was a child








When I was
A small boy
Of around 
6 years 
I discovered
The stars.
I discovered
That if
I went out
At night
And looked
At the stars,
And kept
Watching 
Them,
That 
My 
Spirit
Would 
Slowly
Unfold
From
My 
Body
Expanding out
In all directions,
Like a body
That has been
Hunched up
And is finally
Given
The chance
To stretch 
Out.
This was
Such bliss
For me.
I would 
Gladly
Have
Just 
Stayed
Like 
That
Forever
