Do you ever wonder
who else is out there?
Living, breathing, existing.
Who’s to assume
we’re alone here
on our planet with stars
millions of miles away
shimmering in the night?
Maybe some being
ponders the same question,
wondering if it is simply
a tiny atom or molecule
floating in the larger picture.
Maybe we’re just a raindrop
in someone else’s universe.

“…just a raindrop”… we might as well be so!
Beautiful, my dearest friend!
Happy Thursday, my dear Lauren. 💗🌷🌟👽
Thanks so much, Marina! The world is vast, so who knows, right? Hugs to you for a Happy Thursday, too! 🤩✨🌠💕👽🥰
Thank you, Lauren, for this apt and beautiful poem as we can now see almost to the edge of the universe.
I’m glad you liked this poem, Joanna, and thank you for your beautiful comment. 💞
With all we have access to now, this is even more meaningful
Thanks, Beth. I appreciate your kind words and am glad this poem resonates.
It is a fascinating and intriguing thought, Lauren, and one worthy of writing a poem about. “Just a raindrop” is a mind-blowing concept. ✨ I wonder if there are other poets out there. 🌌 I hope so!
Thanks for your wonderful words, Michele, and I’m happy you liked “Just a raindrop!” I’m sure there are other poets out there, too. We may not know for sure, but we can always hope. 🥰
You are welcome. It is a lovely consideration. 💖
All the time…. Always looking to my Star Family and pondering who else is out there 🙂 Great thoughts..
Happy weekend to you Lauren ❤ hugs your way ❤
I’m glad you do the same, Sue, and thank you for your lovely comment. Happy Weekend to you, too (I’m ready for it), and sending hugs your way also! 💗🌠💗
Hugs right back ❤
I’ve always looked up at the night sky and wondered what was beyond the rain.
We just never know, but it’s a wild concept, isn’t it? Thanks for chiming in, Andrew.
I like this, Lauren. We are indeed as small as a raindrop in someone else’s universe – what a great description!
Thanks for your kind comment, Barbara, and I’m glad you liked this poem. What a concept, right?! Have a good weekend!
The heavens are an amazing sight through powerful telescopes. No seeming end they can see.
Very true! Thanks for chiming in, Ian!
You penned my thoughts and questions so well Lauren.
We are drops and the world is full of them, stars to one’s universe, all part of a whole.
That’s nice of you to “say” Marie. The world is so vast that there is no way to know what lies beyond those trillions of stars. I always appreciate your kind words. Take care and enjoy your weekend! 💕
It is impossible to comprehend all that is out there in the trillions of star systems that we know exist.
Exactly, Binky. Who’s to know what is out there beyond the stars. Thanks for stopping by!
Wonderful poem Lauren. Too good 👍🏼
Thanks very much, Kamal. This thought came to mind and so another poem was born. 🙂 Happy weekend ahead! ❤️
You are always welcome dear Lauren. Happy weekend to you too 😊😊😊😊
HI Lauren, I think people have been asking this question since the beginning of recorded time. So many authors and speculated on this point of what else is out there including my favourites, H.G. Wells and John Wyndham.
I know, Robbie, this question will continue to be asked until we know the answers. 🙂 My husband and I were talking about this the other night, so these words came to mind. Thanks for chiming in. ❤️⭐️
often wonder who else is out there – am sure we are not the only raindrop
Thanks so much for chiming into this never-ending conversation. Have a great weekend!
We discover young-to-us earth people, new galaxies, and planets all the time, some are thousands of light years away. It’s mindboggling. My husband watches some new recording every night done by a program other than Hubble. It has more details with vivid colors. It’s amazing. Great question, Lauren. We’ll find the answer, though may not be in my lifetime!
You’re right, the entire concept is mind-boggling, and the answer will come someday, but not in our lifetime. Still, it’s magical to gaze at those stars and wonder…thanks for chiming in, Miriam. 💗
I wonder about this all the time .
I think we will all wonder for a very long time…thanks for commenting, Brittny.
Any time 🙂
Beautiful poem 👍👍👍
Thanks so much!
I think we really are Lauren ❤
I’m glad you’re on the same page, Debby. 🙂 💗
