Trillions of accidents down billions of years
Brought me to you.
Clashes of stars in a fiery sky
Now placidly blue.
Unimaginable energy to twist the sand
In boiling a sea.
As x-rays and electricity pelt the land
To bring you to me.
As we stand beneath the stars
And marvel at the delight
That we came to be
On the cusp of impossibility.
This is a love poem through the ages; standing on the brink of eternity, an incredible unlikely event – just once in billions of years – accidents in eternity. Billions of years of change, of chance, of astounding wonder, have conspired to provide us with the eyes, ears and touch as we taste the universe together.
What stupendous almost impossibilities conspired to create life and evolve intelligence. Yet we are here. We are peering up at an infinite sky through zillion and zillions of stars. What majesty. What wonder.
