What Surrounds

we can barely feel it

slowly spinning round

the center of the universe

centuries

upon centuries

of

seemingly meaningless

rings

turning

shifting

spinning

round

and

round

circles bigger

than we can imagine

inside rings

we can’t wrap our minds around

in the glimpses

that are the days of our lives

surrounding the shadow

of our world

outside the fleeting

instant of our soular system

beyond

even

time

And who are We?

to not even be able to feel

the tinyness of ourselves

swallowed up in the hugeness of everything

like darkness in the light

And who are We?

to think that the center of the universe is

me

to not just stand in awe

to not take the time to feel small

to think of it all as the backdrop of

my life

When really,

we are

just dots of color

The Painter chose

to make

his masterpiece

complete
