by Marty




Whilst bounded to this nebulous blob

Which, with dumfounded ignorance,

Hurtles through the cosmos,

In but the close proximity

Of that stellar body

Called the sun.


How can I hope

To find the truth

Of the whole universe,

Of which I see

But a billion-billionth part

Or less?



The night conceals a world, and reveals a universe.

- Old Persian Proverb
