13 March 2013

It is as if I have heard
the collapse of a mighty ice-shelf,
or an avalanche
from a tall mountain,
finally come to rest
on the ground
into the ocean,
after witnessing its slow 
motion towards the Earth
from a great distance.
The sound is deep and quiet.
The waves travel outward,
into space
into the universe
into dust.
And then everything is still,
just for a moment.
These atoms will continue on.
