A scripted universe

The Big Bang

A scripted universe

A scripted universe
           of energy and matter
and words
           a cosmic narrative
driven by processes
           that began with a single event
that is still unfolding
           underpinned by a language
that speaks to us
           from the very origins of time
a language that we have translated
           into our own necessary tongues
but a unique story
           of indivisible creation
a language that gives us
           the rose in all its beauty
that gives us love
           in all its tenderness
and an articulate constantly
           innovating expansive existence
that brings both change
           and permanence
because all art outlives life
           as love does too
