All I See Before Me….Infinity

All I See Before Me....Infinity
All I See Before Me….Infinity

Infinity and me…

Vanquished light recedes to night
with a whimper,
and star-crossed those beneath,
gazing into the firmament,
their dreams aloft like flighted doves, released,
and time looks down with ambivalence,
past wound up in light’s glitter, like
bidding hearts from afar,
while clouds escape the burnished horizon,
dissipate like morning mists
and allow those stars to shine.

So many strewn across forever,
white swirling masses of time once held
by another’s gaze,
and in testament of a now malaise,
glimmer youth in time’s slight of hand,
while I in thoughts so lost,
vacant stare this panorama
of pure irrefutable infinity,
my fleeting life a sacred acknowledgement held,
and wonder I do, those secrets viewed,
yet hardly understood.

So small I feel, humbled to insignificance,
before this wake of time’s unfolding,
yet a blink of sentience,
amid eternal flames and refrains of life’s outpouring,
and I try not to delve too deep,
to waste a mind in understanding,
rather breathe it in,
know I am alive within this ultimate beauty,
this divine purity,
and know also I am as stars,
as old at core as all I see before me.

    The profundity of it all can leave one with the knowledge that we are connected to the universe. T’is enough to just be able to admire the beauty before us. Very inspiring and beautiful, Tony.
