65 million years away

God is 65 million years away.
Looking into a telescope at earth,

he sees dinosaurs.

EJ Koh: from the poem “Pledge of Elegance

I don’t know exactly what she means by this but today, when I read it, my mind started to hum. This is what poetry does for me, lifts me out of my usually mundanely buzzing thoughts into a place where questions form that have no answers. Poems, at least the ones I relate to, make me aware of the frailness of reality and incredible opportunities to find new points of view from which to think in entirely new ways.
