The Firmament (Poetry)

calm body of water during golden hour

Where the sky meets the water
That is where I want to be
Or is it where the water meets the sky?
The greatest firmament that ever was

I wish to reach for the endless horizon
The great infinity, the indescribable beauty
To reach farther, to dream further, to stretch
My imagination to the highest firmament

I long to dream of a place, a never-ending sea
In which I can dive to find the greatest treasures
The strangest creatures and the darkest depths
A great adventure like none before ever had

I wish to one day break free of all firmaments
To fly free into the starry night through the galaxies
The infinite universe ever expanding in harmony and grace
I wish to explore the infinite sea of the human imagination

That isn’t a firmament at all
