How it is

by Kevin T McEneaney

The known laws of nature did not exist

until the Big Bang exploded in light

and darkness, which has greater gravity.

There are unusual structures out there

like the Great Ring and the Great Arc of Stars.


We live in the ever-changing present

where waves of consciousness flow over us

as we attempt to cope with every day.


Small moments in life like morning birdsong

are precious buffers to life’s confusion.

A giant blossoming amaryllis

may enliven the day, improve one’s mood

and allow the day to become a song

that fills your beating heart with wondrous joy!
