Fractional Existence

28 Aug

Wrote this on my bus ride to Bengaluru. Thought I’d finally post it.

___________

I gaze at the starry sky, so eloquent and peaceful, as a cold wind beats against my skin. Those minute snowflakes, of which there are so many, do not shine or twinkle, but serenely hint at how little does meet my eye.

Yes, there is after all, so much out there. Gigantic balls of fire, larger in proportions than we could measure. Nebula’s that eagerly await their next cosmic catch. Planets that move further and further away, as we reach out for them, though not truly knowing if they are there at all.
The Universe has existed forever. I, for 20 years, and shall remain only a little longer. In Time, I am but a flash, so shortlived as if only a blink of an eye.
