The Cosmos

The Cosmos

An illegible masterpiece for a man

who explores it as much as he can

to find a kingdom lit with emeralds

with planets the nobility, comets the heralds

and when night falls for one

and when he can?t see the sun

 he gets unnerved by the pitch black night

unaware of emeralds shining bright


           Thereby, embers of transient emotions arise

until the dawn of a new sunrise

when he correlates the cosmos with life

and understands that strife is rife.

Then he turns the eerie night to vapour

by doing the art of pen to paper.
