The Universe Fire



Same world same light
Turning smoothly
Day to night

-
Cruising
Silent
Round the sun
Since conception she has done
In the cold
And
Empty space

Within her skin
So very thin

Moves onward Planet Earth With grace
-
Her atmosphere
Her saving face
-
With sheer disdain
To hurl herself

Upon the seethingComet belts
Where meteors
Shall meet
Their death

Deep within

Earth’s
Gaseous breath
-
Plunging
Onward

Cloud and Sea
Spinning round

So
Evenly

Inertia
That would make you scream

Her mass
so
Mighty
It will bring

-
Nightmares
To

Your Mind
-
Yet picture this and we will see
As far as we all tend to see

The truth of where we live

We are told

Upon our Earth
So very old
-
Yet
Few of us have seen it so

Yet we believe
As if we know

-
So why then

Should we not believe

In
Other things

We do not see?
-
For

Never to have gazed upon

A
Sphere

In orbit
Round a sun

-
That is no bar to truth
It seems

So why deny our origins

- Andromeda or Orions Belt
Where stars are born Planets
Melt
-
Where atoms into atoms smash
Where elements form
In a flash

And chemistry

Is King
-

It is to this we should aspire
-
Our
Heritage
-

The
Universe Fire

-
Remind ourselvesJust
What
We
Are

-
Created
From
-
The
Stuff
of
Stars

-
Expand our minds
To the bigger place

Where we all began
-
The
Human Race
