Heaven and Earth

Heaven

 I

Dark Matter, or Energy- one and the same

Flinging or holding- It’s Gravity’s shame,

Holy Ghost, Space Ghost- ubiquitous, rude

There’s no dream of order you cannot intrude

 

II

Super-massive terrifying ominous Black Hole

You can crush Time, but can you compact the soul?

Brother, you’re more than a mind can bear

For we only see you by what isn’t there

 

Earth

 I

There was a little river

With aspirations grand

To be the first to circle the earth

And cut through every land

 

He, through the narrow canyons, passed

Through woods of thirsty trees

But found all his ambitions lost

When he fell into the sea

 

II

There was a mighty glacier

Crawling in the sun

It towered o’er the valley trees,

Yet envied every one

 

Generations sprouted and fell

And the glacier melted and then

It became the water in their roots

And slowly rose again

    I’ve got to admit I enjoyed each of these short poem and the cleverness that made them poems a lot. Good work.

  2. Nice set of verses, Jared. ‘Black Hole’ grabs me the most–compact, muscular, concise, precise and ends on a slight twist.
