Wheels Turning

Wheels Turning
I know what you mean
by time flying by
so fast.

It’s kind of humbling, isn’t it?

That our lives
are just a tiny speck
in the grander scheme
of things
in the universe.

That the galaxies
continue to dance,
still turning in their song
of births and rebirths,

long before we’re gone.

[This poem was an excerpt from an email to a friend. She wrote that time seemed to pass by very fast. I agreed. The rest of the words just came forth. And they (the words) looked and sounded complete, at least to my eyes and ears. Decided to post it here. The photo was found in Flickr: Photo credited to zen724. “Polar Ring” Galaxy NGC 4650A: A Disk of Red Stars Ringed By Dust, Gas, and More Stars.]

  2. Nice! Fr another perspective, we are like a shooting star. Only a matter of how bright our journey is to the eyes of others

  3. Thanks for the comments. To paraphrase Stephen Baxter (a British SciFi author), we’re “a brief spark that burns brightly”. 🙂
