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
