A Poem by Christopher Michael Smith

I reached into the sky.
I pulled down galaxies one by one.
I counted the nebulae,
the planets,  
& the suns.

I took a deep breath.
I dove into the depths inside,
in search for a deeper meaning of life.

We are the cosmos.
Not ego, not mind.
We are the Universe, 
divided across space & time.

Experience this,
the here & the now.
The past is done
future is unsound.

We are miracles,
Animated with life.
We are because we are,
& it is truly divine.
