Bastet's Shadow


temple-719858_1280 (2).jpg

translating the light
deep within the mass
of an oscillating sea
where dark matter
may be unearthed

is this the dense abyss
of weightless discovery
or are we on the pinpoint crest
of the vast, forever unknown

the empirical quandary

smell
            see
                      touch
            hear
taste

how can you grasp
that which eludes
the senses
limited so, by physical reach

Anubis chases Bastet’s shadow
or is it his burnt-out cosmic tail

the darkest, coolest of cats
alive or dead, existing or not
will not be contained in a box

I like this poem, it reminds me somewhat of a short story I thought about writing down once. Dark matter is very interesting and mysterious stuff to me.

Thank you, LS:) Yes does inspire the imagination, for sure. It is not too late to write your story:)

NICE :)

Thank you, art of wisdom:)

Couched in mythical terms, this reads – to me – as a commentary on relationships and open mindedness, and maybe even critical thinking. Quite a statement! :D

Thanks, Denise:) That is cool interpretation and I see where it came from.
