Cosmic Wheels

Cosmic Wheels
Cosmic Wheels

Cosmic wheels turn with a silent determination,
the machine of life’s rise and fall ad infinitum,
and vast the plays of expansion and implosion
mark the pristine eternal space,
like splattered light upon a deep purple canvas.

I gaze into infinity, drawn to its dilemma,
its secret whispered vows,
and ponder my own small fate amid its turmoil and shroud,
words are unspoken by a deity, mute,
withholding the reality, remaining aloof.

How I yearn for closure, for respite,
from a seeking mind and relentless plight,
finding meaning in a human purpose,
but outweighed by a cosmic curse,
an unknowable eternal illusion of sight.

I bide my time in human affairs,
seek answers to the questions I bare,
yet the real test of my questioning mind
cannot be envisioned from this place and time,
so in a regrettable acceptance, I move on.

Seek I do my lifetimes on other worlds,
memories that spark more questions than help,
and much the same quandary follows my soul,
in living find purpose, but the reality no hold
as I scan my vast timeless fate.

Are we but a microcosm of the infinite space I ponder,
a repetitive cycle so mirrored yet squandered,
or are we in life a purposeful plant,
an exception to be studied, a meaning so scant
I could barely justify the time.

So many questions, so few answers,
perhaps a symptom of our meager intellects,
but the yearning is real, the answers subjective,
so in my own way I accept, my life here is for that alone
and I must relent my obsession, my eclectic taste.

But still, I stand in awe and bewilderment,
gazing into an eternal confusion,
perhaps all is in perfection, but I,
a fusion of possibility but failing awry,
until I finally meet my maker.

Still, there is much beauty before me,
here on earth, and in that cluttered sky,
and I shall imbibe that and in sufferance abide,
the purpose of my earthly ride,
til truth relents my silent keeping.

    In a far distant life time, yet seconds away, the answers will come and we will have already known them. The universe if full of mysteries that tempt us to keep seeking and learning. I love this verse, Tony. It is as beautiful as the cosmic wheels and endless space. Well done. Take care.
