As I ponder upon the dew
streaking away from my windscreen
I wonder, how much life is contained
In that drop of water?
Without it life could not be sustained.
As my car drives down the highway
I cannot fathom the life underneath the road
Does it thrive? Or does humanity impede it?
My thoughts affect this not one bit.
And finally I, with some regret,
consider my limited lifespan
Asking, what is a century to the cosmos?
Should I despair at infinity?
…naar, such a thought is absurdity.
