A Shadow Lain

Our birth is a command, a cosmic voice. We live by law past humans wield to be. We fantasize the future as our choice, Then crash head-on into infinity. Reality's acuity thereof, A quantum leap in magic lantern shows. Beyond our minds to fix upon and solve, Configured in a crayon sketch, below: Collisions, light years, constellations wide. An acquiescence stunning and profound. Occurrences of unimagined fire To place our simple shadow on the ground. Gene Bourne 05-21-14 .
