universe

the universe boggles me
too big and too small
for my finite human mind

it grew…
out of nothing?
what is it growing into,
if the universe is all there is?

it’s just so much.
incomprehensible,
even.

the vast unknown-
the poetry of stars,
the distant moon,
the impossibility of it all-
has always enticed humanity.
maybe we’ve finally met our match.

the world expands
beyond our imagination
even though we can’t keep up.

slowly,
maybe,
we’ll
figure
it
out.
