What we learn about time
         is that it’s never late
what will be will be
         and astronomy if nothing else
teaches us a little humility
         we are part of a larger process
even though our minds
         and our sensibilities
are in a sense
         the custodians of the universe
and so we enrich the stars
         and the blue sky
with all our dreams
         and every shade of enterprise
but let’s not fall into the trap
         of false modesty
we were there
         in one way or another
at the moment of time’s conception
         and ask yourself this
do atoms ever die ?
         light travels but does it ever fade ?
the light turned diamond
         turned rose
turned truth
         turned loving lip
