Lynne Provance 1950 (Cleveland, Ohio)

Out there!
Beyond and within!
Expansive, yet tiny!
Constantly expanding and collapsing.
Ever changing and yet the same.

Infernal balls and frozen wastelands.
Life-giving and life-taking.
Matter and anti-matter.
Nebulas, stars, planets, asteroids, comets, galaxies…
Molecules, atoms, quarks…
Crashing and rebirthing!
Moving and standing still!

Light and dark!

What are we
compared to the enormous proportions
of the beyond and the unknown?
The cosmos!
Our home!
