Cosmic quiver

He chose life because he did
not consider the alternative
viable,
poor man.

He quivered
with the thought of the after –
overwhelmed – life,
a cosmic conviction
that on such scale
(weighing on him still) he is
insignificant but

remains a light in the void.

  1. I was in the mood for some cosmic consciousness; thanks. Shine on, sir, our inner light is part of the universal mainstream, and it will be felt and missed if we withhold it.
