The Space Between Thoughts

Light glimmers off the gold nib
of my fountain pen
dances 'cross my eyes:
lightning in miniature.
Light & energy all the same
measured by quanta
or ('neath th'atomic)
by traces of quarks
charmed particles...
Black ink seems too serious
too stark 'gainst
bright, white paper.
Words, random letters:
wonder of language & perception.
Minds seek order
even in random flashes of light:
signals from other dimensions
worlds beyond reach
just far enough we can't touch them, ever...
Holographic reality dances
in a mirror of light
spins galaxies dancing
'gainst a sea of blackness
filled with spectra
beyond our sight.
I close my eyes & meditate
sensing vastness between thoughts:
Each thought looms
giant-like then moves away
with doppler shift
leaving a space, not to be filled but felt.
A space wherein we meet
the Self we truly are,
becoming Light
our soul, a star.

Dear Hugh, Your scientific acumen is evident here. Poetics meets noetics in harmonious unison. Thoroughly engaging, Hugh from the capa to the coda. Definitely right on my trajectory. You've carried out the mission with laser precision. Scintillating. A magnitudinal 10 for this red giant. Astronomically, Gregory
I like this work because I believe that we are merely a spark of energy that goes on forever even after the bodies give out and inhabits another in time or even another universe. Laugh if you will, but why would the spark die out? Why would the universe not use its resources wisely and reuse these sparks. Interesting look at the knowledge not consciously recognized between our thoughts Rita
Deep spiritual insight, well-written!
So many thoughts in our lives are used for reasons the environment demands. I believe there is much to be discovered, appreciated, and recognized in the space between thoughts Hugh...and the moments of seeing oneself in a new light nessesary for the self-actualization process. A very clever poem. Angie
