Today’s prompt, to write about something large. I chose the largest thing I’ve ever known
It begins, exquisitely, with a deft touch of the serene.
A soft, white flax seed that floats into view,
A glossed green acorn dropping into a dusk-dark still pool,
And from there, it germinates and grows.
One perfect ripple inside a ripple, inside a ripple,
Each heartbeat pulsing the former first world outward,
Ever outward, into space, expanding unrelentingly,
Till the wane begins.
Then the galaxy explodes its vacuum from within.
One step for a very long journey, but where to begin?
Tranquil thunder roars, filling every atom of space,
Silence is the only sound to echo in this place.
A solo solar system.
