Living Paradoxes

What is this ‘thing’ called life

which carries us forwards

into oblivion?

Was it there at the beginning

when the universe was new

and unfinished?

Was the stardust reborn

– imbrued

with fresh possibilities

– now animated

with needs and purposes

and conscious

of being

both a part of

yet apart from

the cosmic dawn?
