Comet Trails

Comet sailed through the void, wondering at times if anyone else ever wondered just what had started it all. If anyone else wondered at the order and beauty of the universe around them or if they were ever too busy to look up and around and notice all the gory that surrounded them.

‘Surely it must be for something,’ she thought to herself, ‘Surely this can’t have happened by accident, no matter what many have thought in the past. That would be like saying that houses that humans live in sprung up out of the ground fully formed without any thought or preparation.’

She chuckled softly to herself, as if she really knew anything about how the houses were built in the first place. She’d been too busy herself to notice just how the strange things came to be in the first place, so it wasn’t like she could judge or use such a comparison herself.

Just because one had lived longer than most others didn’t make them any kind of expert on theology, that was something that Comet knew personally. After all, she had never met any of the great philosophers or such that were taught about in history classes on Earth. She knew very little about them.

She’d been too busy fighting the Chaos-created at the time. The same was said for most advances throughout Earth’s history.

With the exception of the Fall of Rome. She’d been there for that. She’d watched it burn and enjoyed the burning of the Shadows within it.


Yeah, not really sure where this one came from. I was looking through random pictures on I Waste So Much Time (it should be noted that one should be very careful when on that site because it is apptly named) when I saw this bunch of pictures from the Hubble Telescope that took my breath away and the next thing I know, this was written and staring at me from the other side of my screen.

The First Law – Day Six

Only through faith can I give up control.
Because I have hope, I don’t have to know.
Ease in my thoughts come through constant prayer.
Yes I will listen and prepare.

Written in part as a reaction to my sitting through General Conference today, but also because today is the next day of NaPoWriMo (http://www.napowrimo.net/2014/04/day-six-2/).

Peaceful Contemplation – Day Five

Sitting here I fold my arms rev’rently.
Thinking of what I have learned quietly.
Knowing that my savior looks down lovingly.
He cares for me and all of my family, together we
Know that it is for us He will think.
It was us He continually thought of
When bowed with trials he said “I pray for thee.”
 
Forever will I hold Him in my heart rev’rently
Because I know that he will hold me quietly
And brush my tears away softly.
Of peace and joy and forgiveness will He sing.
“Not just my father sent me, but our
Father who sent this melody.”
 
Together now let us feel rev’rently
And know that He loves us quietly.
As a family we will love Him humbly
For we will not live just now.
There is a future for we
Know that eternal life is something for which we pray.
 
His hands forever will let
Us hold in His own; “Thy
Joy in my words are holy.”
He will say as He wraps around us His Spirit.
For eternity our family will dwell,
Together with Him in
A world that brings peace to our hearts.
Not just tomorrow and yesterday, but today.

From the following song:

Reverently, Quietly 
by Clara W. McMaster
Rev’rently, quietly, lovingly we think of thee;
Rev’rently, quietly, softly sing our melody.
Rev’rently, quietly, humbly now we pray,
Let thy Holy Spirit dwell in our hearts today.

Written for today’s prompt for NaPoWriMo (http://www.napowrimo.net/2014/04/day-five/) and because I’m listening to General Conference today and tomorrow. I felt that I should use a song from the Primary Children’s Songbook (https://www.lds.org/music/library/childrens-songbook?lang=eng).
