a child’s eye gazes
into a vast Universe
wondering what lay beyond.

between stars
thoughts of eternity
and a churning stomach
repel sleep.

mortality sows its seed,
still seeming far away.

in time’s blink
it returns to the doorstep,
reminding of now
and life’s remaining flavour.

with moments left,
the child dives
back into darkness
searching, for remnants
of a last hope.

hands wring. there is
no sound of bells
only the swish of red pens
scouring for the rogue syllable.

can a flame be forced from a candle?

can emotion be measured in a breath?

the answer does not lie
amongst academic musings
but in a heart, daring to journey
and connect with its soul.
