"Why fit in when you were born to stand out?" - Dr. Seuss

I don't know of much more beautiful
Than viewing elegant clashes of thunder
Tickling the darkness
Miles and miles in the distance.
With twinkling city lights below,
in multitude and microscopy
from a tiny white airplane
Above a vast, intriguing world.
Which is the sky,
And which is the life we live?

The empirical and dazzling stars
Spread paper thin across the infinite book
Of its beholder.
With clusters of more;
Solar systems of stars
Met by galaxies, and the universe.
All through the hands of human beings?
City lights, I ask you
Which way is up?

I wrote these two pieces while flying home from a month abroad in Europe, gazing at the city life below.
