    Of Things Scientific

    In a moment labeled

    “Quality time,”

    I gaze with you at the stars.

    Your little-boy excitement

    Tugs at my heart

    While thoughts

    Of Copernicus and Galileo

    Lend me a moment to

    Teach.

    So I ask,

    “How do they stay in the sky?”

    Then my tears send the stars swimming

    In a misty kaleidoscope

    As you teach me

    With your

    Faith:

    “I think

    Heavenly Father

    Glues them

    To the clouds.”
