Stolen Seconds

Secreted burst of time so short One would wonder, was it naught? Gamma Ray Bursts so mysterious not long ago, Now understood, what next shall we know. Looping tendrils of coronic waves Not the usual solar way the sun behaves Neutrinos, neutrinos.... Do you add up? Or is your existence, A useless empty cup? Or are you like the ocean; A hydrogen hydroxide molecule of no significent importance Till nature, through happenstance, Collects seventy trillion quadrillion such molecules, powered to 10x10x10 And power and beauty unimagined Come forth in their needed yen So much to learn, we must, As we are barely above cosmic dust.
