The Ponderable Pond

In the cool of an evening
Trees shading the pond,
Contemplatively stirred
Are thoughts of beyond.

Outside of the literal
And realms of the sense, 
Past every horizon,
A cosmos immense.

Beneath the calm surface
Where darkness obscures
The cradle of life
In a pond that endures.

To the right of the moon,
Where darkness obscures
The millions of miles
Of substance unsure. 

Closing eyes wander
While vertigo waves
Gather the senses
In dizzy enclaves.

Millennium pass,
The living will die;
Millennium pass
And no one knows why.
