The Unknown


Originally published on the Literati Mafia

galaxies beguile and beckon,
mouths of black holes yawn.
I face the unknown, bent of body, but bright of mind,
not fearing the dawn
of old age that comes
to all stars, planets, and man.
I face the unknown, time running through my fingers
like grains of silvered sand.

  1. galassie seducenti e chiamano,
    bocche di buchi neri sbadigliano.
    Affronto l’ignoto, piegato di corpo, ma luminoso di mente,
    non temendo l’alba
    della vecchiaia che viene
    a tutte le stelle, i pianeti e l’uomo.
    Affronto l’ignoto, il tempo scorre tra le mie dita
    come granelli di sabbia argentata.

    gorgeous! Gretings from Italy!

  2. Out there in space where life began, so shall each of us will find our end. You and I will be Black Stars, my darkest friend. 🖤

    Your potent words have always defied gravity, Kaddie. Let’s hope old age will be just as kind.
