Specks and Loops


image link

A mere speck,

Absorbing light

And other nutrients

From its surroundings

Glowing, growing

Larger, stronger.

Once easily wiped away

Or washed down the drain,

Now bright and pulsing,

Now entrenched and radiating

Matter approaches and feels heat

Sharp pain, then vaporization if touched.

The inevitability of yin and yang

Compels blinding light and heat,

Then darkness, encircled by a

Magnificent corona.

Last vestiges before

Ten thousand specks of ash.
