Having spent a millennium (or two) among the vastness of space, it dawned upon existence; that being means more than to exist.
& here we are now.
Among the kaleidescope of constellations
(Being dragged amongst the stars is more like it)
Holding breath while comets whiz by,
Inching closer with every pass
These “astronomical units” the gold standard for measurements.
We didn’t need to measure when we got here, merely rearranging atoms to set it all in motion.
