NaPoWriMo - 2018 - Day minus one - To begin at the beginning

To begin at the beginning

There must have been a creator, or possibly not
we do not know.  The creation of universes
is not a thing we've seen.  No-one rehearses
that moment of becoming.  No-one has got
any cosmic remote control to wind
back to the start of time and watch again
and again.  We have no frame in which to frame
such ultimate questions.  The start of time

is far outside our scope...  and yet there's blokes
(of any gender) even as we speak
who peer into their telescopes or screens
and with imagination, maths and hope
they make that leap.  They read the antique light,
and say they see just how it must have been.

  1. I love the thought of beginning before the beginning. Interesting as I just watched a documentary on how math permeates the universe, leaving that question of whether there is a creator. Good work Ian!
