Mystic Shadow Man

Carry Beyond

Just thinking again.






In the immeasurable immensity
Of all that was, and is, and shall be,
Of what conceivable significance am I?

Are unseen shooting stars, blazing into life,
But incinerated into anonymous ash
In a mere millisecond flash,
Beautiful for a reason?

Do our momentarily emitted sound waves
Carry beyond our graves?
