This thing we call the universe reaches out Beyond the beyond. The sweeping sky seduces our senses With shimmering stars. A mere glimpse At endless heavens. Swirling galaxy clusters, Travelling beyond the speed of light.
Like grains of sand on a surf-kissed beach, These star-packed galaxies fly forth. Meanwhile, at sub-atomic level, Exotic particles wink in and out of existence.
Most stars are red dwarves. Many harbouring exoplanets In their Goldilocks Zones. One-eyed worlds with the same side Always facing the sun.
On such a world there’s no such thing As a day. It’s always the same time If you stay the same place. Hot day one side, Frozen night on the other. A bright side with black plants Under a rose tinged white sky.
But there are plenty of golden stars Just like our sun. Stars surrounded by rocky earths like ours.
Is our Earth unique? Does it take a planetary collision To form an Earth and Moon Supporting life? Time may tell. And if we’re lucky, We might just live to see it.
Did God create this Universe of ours Or is it all by chance? Who knows? Who cares? Just enjoy.
I do love space. (Another stanza added 15 minutes after the Big Bang, I mean posting).
