dancing toward infinity, a poem … and your Wednesday Writing Prompt

spiral galaxy in Constellation, Coma Berenices, 60 million light years from Earth

spiral galaxy in Constellation, Coma Berenices, 60 million light years from Earth


each lively soul
worlds contained
a galaxy of one
our gases, our dust
our gravitational pull
our weak wills
our strong compulsions
our stark shadowlands
our gaudy stars
dancing toward infinity
