Does anyone else, also hear this?
The wind of time that makes us feel small?..and sense of wonder, large?
And now we (as a species mind you) have discovered other worlds.
The astronomers found water worlds, a diamond planet-
As if our own isn’t vast enough!
Whatever is here manifests itself elsewhere.
The universe around us, the local ‘neighborhood' is taking shape,
things, bodies, come out of the darkness..asteroids fly by,
and a (female) moon covered in ice piques us with questions of life there.
Where will we be in a hundred years?
Words are discovered, the ones already hovering
in muscles ripe for movement,
another noun gives us a door.
A pretty muse dangles at the buffet,
of days, of hours, of poisons of inactivity.
There's no use in waiting.
The silent message is (once again?) to act and just....be.
