The romance of the Cosmos

The celestial realm is doing a waltz Debris rocks with firefly tails Are a part of this romance of the cosmos While spirals of light and gasses are moving Through an endless expansive universe Down on one of the rotating rocks Are a life force of ingenuity Breathing atoms of purpose But flesh and bone […]
