MirosławWójcikOurSpace 800

Our space is a strange place.
On the one hand boundless
infinity. On the other, strictly
limited by the state of
contemporary mankind’s knowledge suffering still
from insufficiency; an inseparable curiosity’s particle.

What then can say a
tiny man gazing at the
puzzling mosaic of countless bright
dots shimmering around the globe
put in motion billions years
ago, being simultaneously quite young?

Just and only here is
our day-to-day living
space. Meanwhile we are perseveringly
searching for different space of
extraterrestrial worlds, what already partially
redefines our perception of cosmos.

How many steeps divide us
yet from a decisive discovery
we haven’t even imagined, however,
have been waiting for since
centuries? Did we miss something?
Patience will bring the answer.

    From Dust to Dust

    by Harley White

    From dust to dust our lives are thrust, while flames the candle's brief combust. We leave the shelter of the bay, unmindful night will follow day, to launch our voyage,...
