The Longest Sigh

The Longest Sigh

The Longest Sigh

The currents that deliver us
do not concern themselves
with time or distance,

even as we anticipate the quaver
that signifies the end.

Then, now.

Near, far

Center.

All are the same in the eons of the
slow, sustained breath of the cosmos.

APOD inspires, with the aid of a not-so-simple comment from Robert Okaji…
“a slow, sustained breath, quavering at the end”
