Honouring Stephen Hawking

 

WOMB ~ a poem honouring Stephen Hawking

Enclosed I roam from star to star,
I travel endlessly, I whisper and
my breath unfolds behind me as
a vale, a shooting star, a comet
on its way and growing, growing
with each light-year passing by,

O yes, there is much pleasure in this
roaming, it is creation of a master
plan and still this roaming is
continuing, and when from time
to time I reach the boundaries of
my confinement, I feel a sudden
shiver, as if some unseen Hand is
there to push me back, or could it
be the vale behind that keeps on
coming back, I wonder.

So here I am, inside and out,
no matter how the journey goes,
there always will be worlds to enter
and others then to leave behind,
the roaming will continue, on and on,
no ending, no beginning,
so is the roaming in the Womb of Being,
the cavern of a master’s plan.

Universe

Astrophysicist Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson was asked by a reader of TIME magazine, “What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the Universe?” This is his answer:

My poetic reply:

Enclosed I roam from star to star, I travel endlessly,
I whisper and my breath unfolds behind me as a vale,
a shooting star, a comet on its way and growing, growing
with each light-year passing by, O yes, there is much
pleasure in this roaming , it is creation of a Master Plan
and still this roaming is continuing, and when from time
to time I reach the boundaries of my confinement,
I feel a sudden shiver, as if some unseen hand is there
to push me back, or could it be the vale behind 
that keeps on  coming back, I wonder. So here I am,
inside and out, no matter how the journey goes,
there always will be worlds to enter and others then
to leave behind, the roaming will continue, on and on,
no ending, no beginning, so is the roaming in the Womb
of Being, the cavern of His Master’s Plan.
