Dome and Windows

sky dome over us all
teaches us a shape

we never knew
in our straight line
square cornered lives

one clever person saw
our universe was
only half a globe

from where we stand

soon it was obvious
then everyone knew

as far as horizons go
where a man stands
on an ocean-side cliff

a definite curvature
may be easily seen
from any cliff

so it was obvious
we are small creatures
on an enormous ball

domes mirror the universe
as seen from where we stand

light comes in the windows
