On the terrace in the sun, I closed my eyes
and saw coloured light dancing under my
eyelids like a galaxy that only existed inside
of me … or is the real galaxy an illusion?
Scientists watch stars in their great telescope
but only see what is in their heads …
And we agree because we too only see what
is in our own mind. Ruby stars and pink moons
and the dream of immortality that our souls
fly to a mysterious planet like our own where
death has been vanquished.
