Sudden Heat

I put my hand into the strange swirling pattern in the rock, and so did she.

We put our hands together there, and then suddenly felt the intense heat

As first our hands, then arms, then shoulders, (then our bodies), dipped into the cold stone of eternity

A silence cured by cosmic ray lamps- black holes and pulsars, (it takes a bit of time). Do you know where life came from? There.

Did you see that shooting star?

Neither one of us expected it, and yet we both thought exactly the same thing.

At that moment, we looked inwardly and outwardly, simultaneously {sorry Prof. Einstein} imploding and exploding, towards the Universe’s, of both the very small and very large.

This tendril of a vine stopped here, and then jumped across a galaxy

Through a Worm hole, in time itself.


There is a mirror universe, not too far away

Someone wakes in one village, another wakes in another.

She takes a sip from a cup, an aliquot of liquid deuterium oxide, (fresh squeezed star juice), spilling from a fountain

And dreams of meeting him. They still look at each other, with that latent heat of recognition,

not towards a street, or a house,

Or across a valley, not even across a table,

But towards a day.

And within that, to whatever frame of time, that stops long enough.
