events

eight billion years ago
the star we see today on the firmament
exploded into being

and in that silent explosion
darkness turned to light

sitting here tonight
isn’t there also a star
exploding in my heart?
isn’t there also that silence
still present in this explosion?

isn’t this too
an event in the endless stretch of eternity
a finitude that makes infinity known
a point that brings alive a limitless vastness
a human being, in who the purpose comes alive
of a seemingly purposeless universe
