Universe Haiku

Immense universe
Black paper parchment with holes
Soaking in earth's light

Who is your maker?
Is it the great Greek Ammon?
Perhaps you evolved

Don't mock me high One
You cannot burn me with stars
For I have water

Your great galactic
Space has only fate and fire
Nothing I don't have

You live forever
Sometimes giving me a glimpse
A flash of strange bright

Your only true might
Is vastness and secrecy
I will find your soul

CASSINI goes forth
To steal your ancient treasures
Yet I still tremble
