I am a mere dust in the whole universe......

he* has just begun his day; they say he is fifty-one years old,
i am in my thirties, i wonder at his creation;
i assure myself, I will see the world, and i have time enough;
when i will be leaving this 3-D world, if time allows
at 70 or 80 or at any time, he will still be spending his first day,
probably his morning rituals going
with a lot more time than i can imagine
for I am a moth for him as a moth is for me;
time wraps around space, that much space that i can hold,
that much space i can behold, that much space i take;
so is my lifespan only so much that much i take
in this whole universe? then i will expand with my vision
to see those space times i missed, to glance at the whole
that’s coming and that’s always there,
where, maybe the demonic dramas of boundaries, religion and profits,  
the dramas we see every day may not make sense
but maybe the time of light will evolve in front of the sight!

  5. It's all relative, isn't it? Yet I love the drama your poem brings to it.

  6. the time of light will evolve in front of the sight

    A fabulous conclusion to a mind-boggling concept.

  7. We'll have to wait and see... I sure hope there is light ahead. We need it, badly.
