Night meet Day
by Rebecca Andre
I don’t know why I’ve always believed
the universe expands and then retracts and explodes
out again into new life.
The experts say otherwise.
I guess I took it on Faith.
For the beauty of it.
For the rightness of it.
What kind of world expands into nothingness?
Not one for me.
An expansion and
is so much more beautiful.
It is anathema for an agnostic
to go on faith for something -
but I clung to that beauty anyway.
Science evolves with new beliefs
and new insights.
Dark matter can be figured out.
The retraction explosion new life
can still be meticulously uncovered
archived in some tome in the future
In the meantime
the universe is ALIVE and
in my mind.
III. At Peace.
We humans are capable of immense faith
for the sake of beauty
Author's Note: It's the realization that I choose.
