From nowhere to eternity

(for Venu)

Life is a continuum


from a nanosecond to trillions of millenniums

from a bacterium to bacteria

from a star to a black hole...

In between, you and me, my dear

we weave our lives from eon to eon

how naive

to think our love is eternal!

how ephemeral are our lives,

our loves

when just beyond our fingertips

the void waits to take us back-

you, cosmic dust!
