It’s a billion stars moving and colliding,
While we sleep.
It’s one miracle after another and still,
We do not take the leap.
 
It’s the great heave of nature
With whirling wind and shifting fate.
It’s our human lives, in comparison,
As small as a lump of clay.
 
It’s the law of impermanence,
Our lives can change in a blink.
Shine and love while you can,
Time passes faster than you think.

(2015)
