Flying Over the Mediterranean, I See Stars in Abundance

By Jason Kerzinski

I turn to
this moment of deep-rooted
serendipitous joys
clustered together
thirty thousand feet above
sensing the night’s curvature
her autonomy a glow
a brand new universe
being birthed inside her navel
held for safekeeping
is where I'll forever be
heeding her presence
stars being born
each time I blink
