When I Look Up At The Sky

When I look at the sky: Capture Sunshine

When I look up at the sky, I feel significantly small. Significant enough to make an impact yet small in this vast world that we call our own, yet smaller in this multiverse.

It’s a humbling experience.

To learn that billions of us of different races, ethnicity, countries, genders, ideas share the same sky. That we all are so different from one another but yet the same.

To understand that we are not alone.

To know that there is a world out there to explore.

To realise that there is a universe out there to figure about our origin.

I’m in awe.

To see how differently shaped clouds float together in the bright blue sky in such unison.

To be able to look when the sky is beautifully painted with the hues of sunset.

To see how the sky gets dark and  how the stars show up one by one until the sky is nothing but a blanket full of diamonds.

To be showered in the silvery hazy glow of the moon.

To feel an ineffable notion within me, that makes me feel right at home, that longs to go back to its roots.

as I continue to look up in amazement, gaze at the infinity and ask the most important questions.

To ponder about my place in this wondrous universe.

    Beautifully said! There’s nothing quite looking up to the sky, whether the clouds or the vast blue or stars and noting how unbelievably expansive everything is. Thank you for sharing this lovely piece.

    What a lovely way to share your experience of looking up at the sky. I love a clear blue one with puffy clouds but I can lose myself in the countless stars of night. It is easy to forget all else and be at peace with everything.

    This is absolutely lovely. I particularly like the idea about how we all look up at the same sky – it seems so obvious when you say it, but it’s something that connects us, and that’s amazing. Thank you for sharing 🙂

    I love this piece. It makes you feel grateful for what’s going on so far and how life somehow goes together. Sunsets are the best – you see the transformation of the sky going from daytime to nighttime, with the colors shifting. Thanks for sharing this piece.
