Before schoolyard play
Before the river’s embrace
Before that 1st true love
Before brain snooze via ” the use”
Before gurus or academic blues

They introduced me to the VASTNESS.

April 23. 1929 and 1898. The birth dates of Arthur my father and George my grandfather.

In their honour and with Big Gratitude I share this with you:

“The Universe so Vast
our future and our past

In a glance brightness
appears and disappears,

The what seemed an overwhelming distance
between us
disappears into
the Universe so Vast

Lost, absorbed… Made relatively insignificant,
like all the other differences once held so near

Gone forever,

Assigned to their rightful miniscule place

Within the brightness and beauty of

The Universe so Vast.”

To Your Great Life!
