The sun groaned as it pulled inward
and then expanded, brighter still.
The planets moved in strange new orbits,
colliding or flying outward
toward unchartered ground.
The moon bowed to the weight of gravity
as it kissed the earth below,
and then shattered;
its pieces moving in toward the sun.
Debris rained down for eons,
as the planets became shards
and then turned into dust
as soft and fine as down.
A brand-new cloud was born
colored like a rainbow;
stretching broad and tall
across a place in space that was once
somewhere else it time.
For eons, it grew bigger
as its silken mists were stirred,
creating unknown particles
while ethereal gases began to burn.
Sparks of light appeared from nowhere…
while a new sun began to glow.
And far away someone watched
that light from long ago,
filtering through space and time
toward a new a different world.
A world where ice was green,
soil was blue, and flowers emitted
neon beams of gold
aimed at the dwarf red sun up above.
“I wonder,” asked a silver eyed monster,
to no one but himself,
“does life exist elsewhere…
or are we all alone?”
