Ancient Observer

This ancient observer
Mute and steadfast
Floating high above the horizon
Circling the firmament
For billions of years

Watching the dinosaurs fall silent beneath a cloud of ash
Watching civilizations spring out of open fields and spill across vast oceans
Watching the bones of those we love sink back into the Earth

Apathetic to our own toils
Indifferent to our own queries
To our universal questions of meaning and purpose
Pulled to the surface under a canopy of distant stars

Questions unanswered by this mute and steadfast witness
This silent companion of our home planet
Suspended in a peaceful tapestry
High above the horizon

“She didn’t quite know what the relationship was between lunatics and the moon, but it must be a strong one, if they used a word like that to describe the insane.”

Timing is everything. Captured this shot completely by accident while walking around my neighborhood.
