Dreaming Within the Dream the Universe Slumbered: A Poem

Post by ROU Killing Time » Fri Jul 17, 2009 8:16 am

I dream of darkness, a void, an abyss, more quiet than the stillest lake's surface.

I dream of a light, a splendorous illumination shining brightly amidst it.

I dream of space and time and an infinite cosmos of complexity, stretching beyond distance, but always interconnected and as one.

I dream of galaxies and clusters, nebulae, quasars, black holes and tunnels through the fabric of reality.

I dream of stars and planets and life springing abundant.

I dream of you, each and every one of you.

And you and everyone, while dreaming of each and every one another, dream of me.

As if God had been daydreaming and absentmindedly put Doug Adams soul into Martin Luther King's body..

Or Martin Luther King had been daydreaming and absentmindeldly put God's soul into Doug Adam's body...

Or maybe it's Doug that's napping here.

Or all of the above?

In any event, I have to humbly accept evoking thoughts of those two erudite souls, both who left us far too soon, as pretty high praise.
