Astronomer

 

       Astronomer

Peering through a telescope

Trying to grasp reality

Dust gathers in his eyelash

Beyond observatory walls

Galaxies in Space - empty

To understand, to explain

Mosquito over Niagara Falls

Hanging on abyss - eternity

With a limited human brain

Cloudy mists and raindrops

Every flow and every splash

Every drop at every bend,

Every eddy, every crash.

Where does it begin or end?

Everything else is in vain

It is here the bucket stops

Everlasting search forever

Reality he can't capture

Amid the deafening thunder

Plight of an astronomer...
