Arcing interstellar bow waves
Grind themselves
Releasing their innocence
Deterring a hated future of insecurity
Rapidly unleashing a forgotten energy
Slowly, blending unseen colors
Derive a fancy, forgotten sound
Determined to unseal a magic
A moment of instant clarity
A burst of energetic wonder
And a known end to an unknown moment
Searching for meaning
Wishing for guidance
On a path to relevance.

In the far away, near
Reaps a measured distance
In an attempt, to be clear.

The voraciousness value
Of a distant, frontier
Releases a measured vision
As a light, reflected year.

traveling by wave
details a curious question
of how dark energy
can behave.

A cascading downward ion
Behind a scaling mesosphere
Decreases its wavelength energy
By denying its gravitational fear.

Twenty million light years
Of ancient questions sought
Deliver old found promises
Of apocalyptic thought.

A sense of time
A wondrous vision
Of collective soul,
That shines.

Stronger interactions
Of fundamental fields
Describe confinement binders
Of prototypic yields.

Weaker chain attractions
Unveils what is concealed
By driving gluon anger
To divide its quarky shield.
