Just So…

What is this heavenly radiance I see before me with such uncanny beauty?
It is like a sky full of stars, but it is morning.

The light emitted is bright, beautiful, wondrous, and other worldly,
so much so that I find myself trying to catch my breath.
I cannot take my eyes off the dazzling display
of what looks to be sparkling diamonds
and precious gems of all kinds
with fire like I have never seen before.

Hundreds of water droplets clinging to a screen
have caught the early morning light, just so…
resulting in refraction of the light, just so…

Each droplet sparkles and pulsates with its own unique color.
All shades and hues of a panoply of colors can be seen
more vivid and vibrant than I could have ever imagined.

Is this how the universe of stars would look
if the dust and light years between us were removed?
Or is this the quality of light seen in the heavenly realms?

But alas, the gentle morning sunbeams that gave light, just so…
impinging on ordinary droplets of water at an angle, just so…
giving birth to such incredible beauty…
must now give way to a rising sun
and I am quickly transported back to earth.

Exhilarated by what I have just seen,
I realize that there is so much more
beyond ordinary perception.
Another world of unimaginable wonders.
A revelation that was given, just so…

  1. The photo posted with the article is unrelated to what I saw. I tried to take a photo of this phenomenon but the camera could not reproduce the range of color and light I was seeing. The photo was comparatively dull and uninteresting.


  2. The idea that stars might exhibit a range of colors rather the white we see from earth is supported by pictures taken by the Hubble telescope
    (see http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/hubble/multimedia/ero/ero_omega_centauri.html)

    Images of the Omega Centauri globular star cluster showed stars of various colors, such as red, orange, yellow, and blue. Astronomers believe that the colors correspond to the age of individual stars and where they are in their life cycle. However, the range of colors of the stars captured by Hubble, their quality, and vividness do not compare at all with the water droplets.
