Yawning Stars

Yawning Stars

By Scott Thomas Outlar. 

I watched you yawn a universe into existence
I witnessed as you sang a cosmos into style

I saw you sigh, and the heavens roared
then you smiled, and the gods came alive

I felt you move, and the stars fell into rhythm
then you danced, and the planets cycled into their place

You closed your eyes, and the full moon shined
and when they opened, the sun blazed hot

Your passion flared, and the earth shook violently
but then you laughed, and all grew calm

You said Yes, and the gates flew open
Your power coursed through every wave

You spoke the Word, and the gospel was born
Your vibration, a serenade of the holy symphony


SCOTT THOMAS OUTLAR spends the hours flowing and fluxing with the ever changing currents of the Tao River while laughing at and/or weeping over life’s existential nature. His words have appeared in close to 100 various literary venues in 2015. His debut chapbook “A Black Wave Cometh” is available through Dink Press on Etsy.
