HOW MANY?

 

How many people we become
How many years it takes
How many we give away
How many we share, how many times we clasp some
How many we take
Is life a portrait?
How many we make
How many colors we add
How many fade away in time 
How many we give away 
How many we keep
How many they keep
Do we all live with pain
How many can be without them
Can we be without them?
Without pain is there taste in life?
What is the flavor of life
How many have savored it?
Can we all understand this enigma of life
How many do, How many?
How many Moons of life we can count
How many tides before they go down
How many dazzling moments we remember 
How many glories have been of our dreams? How many?
How many dust full galaxies there may be
How many stars glitter in the dark of the night, countless!! 
We all have our stars in the constellations unknown
How many no one will ever know
Let them stay in their quantum leaps
How many, how many
How many are many

INTO DARKNESS AND LIGHT

“There are some hundred billion galaxies, each with, on the average, a hundred billion stars.”
― Carl Sagan

Written on 20 May 2011.

Space and its vastness have always fascinated me. There is light but as you go deep there is darkness, yet there is light. How can one measure, despite the measure in thousands of light years? It actually seems irrelevant. The smallest in the sky are usually the biggest. Why then size matters? We only can compare what we see and beyond lies the truth – or again darkness. The far ends of known stars and suns are thousands of light years apart. But how can boundaries be defined in nothingness? There are no corners; there are no squares or circles. There are no means to draw parallels expect what lies within hangings, being flung into each other and then burst and disintegrate. I saw Cosmos many years ago, I now read Cosmos Cosmos by Carl Sagan and once again write how I feel again.

“Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were, but without it, we go nowhere.”
― Carl Sagan
