Together we looked into the night sky and traced the glimmering of a hundred bright stars

The Virgo. The rocky moon. A faint glimpse of Mars

Not fully fathoming the grand play we observed

Infinite expanses of toiled space and matter unnerved and undeterred

A whirlwind of the various forces that propel all things in existence

A mutual interplay of persistence stretches into the distance

The beauty of such is invoked in many mortal songs

So vast and violent we can’t fathom an interpretation

Yet we hear nothing

The eternal interwhirling of rock and gas wrap their orbits around this rock of ours

Black holes devour any matter without regard to outside power

Yet we see nothing

Traveling through space at speeds unthinkable we remain unprovoke…
