Heaven's Gate


Out of nothingness a big bang

The universe from darkness sprang

Creating worlds and asteroids

From giant matterless cosmic voids



Born of chaos and disorder

Follow rules of natural order

To create primordial home

Far beneath celestial dome



And we travel through time and space

Moves with imperceptible pace

Pass the sun to galactic core

Enthralled by worlds yet to explore



Curious; we gaze with wonder

Dreaming of the wide blue yonder

Marvel at the awesome notion

Life in perpetual motion



In our brief earthly existence

Bound by gravity resistance

Can we transcend the confusion

Life out there pure illusion



We yearn to fly elements of stars

Earth Venus Jupiter and Mars

Memories echo yesterday

Time far beyond the milky way



The elusive Eden we seek

Will surrender its great mystique

Will angels wait at heaven's gate

Where fate of man they will debate



Will he return to save man's soul

Will worlds explode into black hole

Cosmos expanding growing fast

To unite in one final blast

When you think about the Universe, do you feel?

  • small
  • insignificant
  • Lucky to be here
  • Part of something bigger than yourself
  • There must be a God
  • It doesn't affect me, it just is
  • Closer to nature

Mankind, in its many religions, believes that there is a life after death - I hope we're right. Nice one.

You point out Jo; in my opinion, the irony of the black hole or the big bang. I really like this.

I believe creation theory as well as evolution theory. One is the matter of faith, other is the rationality. Thanks for sharing this profound composition.

Beautiful and thoughtful poem. This verse captured my attention. It is the awe that makes us wonder. It is the curiosity that drives us to explore. Thank you for this well written poem.

Your poetry is just beautiful, Jo! I love your choice of pictures; very beautiful, almost surreal! We are so small compare to the immensity of the universe; it gives us the chance to think a lot. When I think of your questions.... I could have chosen a few of them :-)

Enjoy the rest of the week!

This was a good poem, and I enjoyed it as well as the supplementary photos. When you look at the larger -- much larger -- scheme, it's so easy to feel tiny but part of something grand and masterful.
