Nautilus Universe

we're just a layer in the shell.
True infinity-Neverending above, neverending behind;
The realm of the Creator is but another layer,
arcing asymptotically forward
leaving us to bask in the glory of supreme chase
and give tribute with vanity
instilled in the most axial part of unwitting offspring.
What else is a convex lens to do?
Yet we dance in the sunlight and burn forever.
Nanosecond tick-phosphoric flash, wicks crumble in solar wind.
Surely we must shimmer in the sky.
Sure the stars are blind, but so are we.
The absurdity of the sublime must equal its meaninglessness.
Thusly balance is had.
To live in medium is harmony;
for the sky rains fire and cool seas rest beneath the surface.
To claim atmosphere is made for the lungless is a stretch indeed.
Were we to inhale, the thought of us would shatter.
Nay, reside in mellow grass and humble wood;
give them fuel to burn.

In awe.

There are so many great lines in this poem.
This was beyond anything I could have fathomed.

Were we to inhale, the thought of us would shatter.

Definitely my favorite.
