Poem : A life ebbing away

Looking up at the midnight sky.
I noticed a meteor flashing by.
Travelling so fast on its way.
To the outer planets far away.

Its seen places no man will see.
Been to many unknown galaxies.
In one of these far of places.
Has it been seen by another being.

Leaving a trail of ice as it goe’s.
This is its life blood ebbing away.
How much longer has it got to last.
Before it stops and comes to rest.

Born at the time of the big bang.
It’s traveled for millions of years.
When it’s life is finally ended.
It could crash with silent bang.

  10. Hi There Harry…thank you for the award.
    Any idea how I get it on my sidebar?
    Am working on the acceptance speech…watch this space.
    Thinking of seven things you guys don’t know about me is going to be hard.

  11. Sup…Old Irish Tater? Granny ever give her acceptance speech? I just got in from work, and she left a comment, saying:;I came to visit but you haven’t posted…well, I thought I would let all the links I posted marinate a while… but I guess I better cook something up to post right quick…before she comes to visit again, and disowns me ???
    God Bless

  12. Very provocative poem, Harry. I see all of us (in our last moment) going out in silence. I like the idea of that, but that’s because I enjoy silence…;)

  13. I love the thought of “silent bang”

    I shall have to lie down in a darkened room while I ponder how that might work!!!


  14. Sound is slow, so we won’t hear it, we will all be dead before the sound reached us? Uplifitng thought πŸ™‚ Wonderful poem!
