Sonnet for my father

Stars music - flickering atmosphere light
Mirroring reality's telescope
Wishing for that clearest and darkest night
Constellation's infinity is hope

Train rides through life, stopping at this station
The chugging of steam fulfilling the dream
Eagerly discovering creation
Serenity found by the babbling stream

Making life into more of a riddle
Stirring the mind with questions unfolding
Singing life's song and playing life's fiddle
Finding truth within Science's holding

Gazing heaven's enigmatic clear sight
Soul and imagination will take flight
