Big Bang Theory

The esoteric secret
of the birth of this universe
lies half buried in
expanding space,
exploding supernovae
or equipped labs.

It waits to be unearthed
during that vital moment
when man and woman
melt into ecstatic union.

There is an explosion of space
in a bubble of time, and
sperm and ovum,
matter and energy,
good and evil
clash, then form
delicate relationships.

One can easily betray the other.
But what holds them together?

The chain reaction that set off
aeons ago, way before
the dawn of the first day
continues in the womb of a woman,
like a bright idea explored thoroughly,
with its labyrinths of possibilities.

God didn't stop at Big Bang.

For how Long will i Rest?

Before the fire is dowsed, 
before time runs out, 
before it takes 
all my might to muster 
that in me which 
writes a poem,
I must seek 
divine inspiration 
like a lover who can search
the ends of the earth 
for his beloved.
For how long will i rest?

The last dying leaves.
decaying brown, strip branches bare;
the trees look forlorn.
