Fluid like the stars

At last: a peaceful night's sleep and a renewed sense of well-being at dawn.  And how perfect is this Rumi poem for today!

"The nightwatchman knows the way
from body to soul, 
how soul moves
in stomach bile, 
in blood and semen, 
in saliva.

Soul works inside those fluids
to keep the body 
fresh and full of energy.

So the stars and the planets and this world
are moving to bring grace here
through the cold night-clarity..."

In your image, the globe (Earth?) seems unachored but serenely floating in a universe of blue, and almost as if it's been dropped through that hole where light shines.
