Nothing Makes Sense - a poem

Nothing Makes Sense   A trillion stars glistening like white salt crystals on black velvet; The Milky Way a band of circling smoke; A mind to witness the majestic impossibility; A mind to ponder all possibility; A sea of questions to founder in; Answers like driftwood to cling to; Facts that are a mirage in a desert of emptiness; Delight in the wonder and the awe.   Sitting on a warm rock with feet dangling in space, Staring out to sea as the very last hues of the day’s sun fade on the horizon, What does it matter? Suspended here between the breath-taking imponderables of macrocosm and microcosm, Both of whose mysteries lie beyond our comprehension, Incompatible in their weirdness, We bask in the glory of our reality And breathe its beauty.   Yet still we dare to fathom the reality of quarks, quasars and black holes &…

  Ok. I read all those comments here about Charlotteville. I excuse myself, because it's not my business what happens in the US (I get often reminded of that), but what happens over there comes over here to Europe too - sooner or later. Sometimes it's good news like Elvis, Easy Rider or Noam C…

Synchronicity - great minds think alike?

I am an antitheist and have seen no evidence for the existence of any deity, yet I find myself strongly attracted to many natural phenomena, such as sunsets, starry nights, trees, rocks, seascapes and mountains, in what I experience as a ‘spiritual’ connection and I am a great believer i…

IS THAT YOUR FUTURE ?

  See that ? Could be YOU in a couple of years. Be that in the US or here in Europe. Old age poverty will increase at a thousand percent rate. Too many people, an aging population, not enough jobs for people being able to pay income tax, and therefore the savings for social security and r…
