Hark! Hark!

The swirling spheres in proclamation

jangled silver bells.

The whole kerfuffle woke the stars and the

Light of more silver bright to

Magnify that

 

We

 

We humans all

Understand

 

Understand, understood, know

The planets, the universe,

All there is

To understand and know.

All of everything.

 

the planets therefore

understood above all

of the universe

since we all

understood (finally, absolutely)

all there is

 

We humans know all

all of

therefore,

all of today,

all of the universe, the planets, understanding,

knowledge,

light,

years,

everything.

I heard on the radio this morning that it is World Space Week. I am often overwhelmed by the enormity and intricacies of the greater universe. Will humans ever really understand it all? Do we really need to? I imagine, loosely, a poetic press conference on the day full knowledge of all is announced.
