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
the Universe so Vast
Lost, absorbed… Made relatively insignificant,
like all the other differences once held so near
Assigned to their rightful miniscule place
Within the brightness and beauty of
The Universe so Vast.”
To Your Great Life!
