Flash of Time
 In flash of time mid solar sway
some swirling strands of DNA
begat the beings that we know
in earthly ages long ago
concocted out of astral clay.
M-Theory’s profuse array
has cast us in this matinée
albeit but a cameo
in flash of time.
Can we not while away our day
with other than fray after fray
as players in immense tableau,
spontaneous creation’s show,
of cosmic multiverse ballet
in flash of time?

The poem is a rondeau…
“Nothing cannot exist forever.”
~ Stephen Hawking (1942-2018)
“Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist.”
~ Stephen Hawking (1942-2018)
Info ~ Stephen Hawking’s ‘The Grand Design’ puts M-theory to the mysteries of the universe…

Image explanation ~ Within the Small Magellanic Cloud — a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way — hides the star cluster NGC 602. This stellar nursery formed when a gas cloud collapsed into clumps due to gravity, giving birth to a plethora of new stars. These young, blue stars are slowing eroding away the cosmic material that surrounds them, creating the glorious glowing pillars of material you see above.
