Musings Under the Oaks: The Indifference of Space
Looking into the vast indifference of space
where darkness reigns, it’s easy to believe
that our lives are of no consequence.
But if you consider that space and time
cannot be separated and everything
that happens is absorbed into the fabric
of the universe,
Then the importance of each life will shimmer
with the light of virtue wrung from the darkness,
and the indifference of space will be the frame
for its meaning.
