Urania

the horizon knows no bounds

Urania ………

……One Basic Truth…..

The Suns ……The Moons…..The Stars …….The Sky ……
Into their Eldest ………….…The Time ……..They Fly…….

So Unfathomable ……..Beauty …………So Bounteous……..Powers …..
What Quantum of Energies ……These Celestial Cousins Possess ..
Contained ….. As if in some Sacred Fear…… In Awful Reverence …
To some Universal Dictum …….……They Always …………Stress…..

With Regularity so Accurate …..As if in some …..….Eternal Solutions …
They Move-in and Adhere-to ……In Absolute Programmed Positions.

But Celestial She ……….…….The Fairest Lighting ……..…..
Would Always Scream ….Would make the Clouds …..To Thunder …
With Relentless Ferocity …………………She would Shriek ………….
She would Shrill and Leave the Eldest ….The Time ….To Wonder….

No Laws of Universe could Ever………..….Bind Her …….….
Her Fun-loving Nature left all Rules …….….Behind Her …….…
With Flashing Speed .…..She would always .……Streak ….…
Because of her Eternal Fraternity …..She Loved to Freak ……
Dancing Miles Over Oceans …..…..Miles Over Mounds …..….
Her Exuberance Recognized …..No Limits ………No Bounds….

What was this Tiny Creature …….The Stumbling Little Man ….
So Short-Lived ………And yet ………..Reigning the Earth …..…
Pursuing ….….Peace ….……Power ….……Prosperity …….…
Bearing Bravery …….…Strength …….Passion to no Dearth…..

Gravitated to this Courageous Endeavor …….
And to Earth’s ……………Sweet Smell …………
She Roared …….……Tore the Space …….…..
Attacked to Kiss ……..Charged her Spell……..

It is all fun ……. Yet her Cousins …….frowned and were Stern ……
Was She too not Celestial? ……..When were They to Learn? ….

“……..If by some Deepest Meditation ……..
They Maintained their ……..Proclaimed Profiles…….
Then the Man’s Prolific Journey too …….……
Was Sure worth a Billion ………Smiles………”

And he ………….Benjamin Franklin ……….
Watched her ………Just Contemplating ………
Erect …..His Head Up ……His Hair Falling Back …
How was She to Resist ………The Temptation ….
Echoing ……..….Shrilling ……..…..Hissing ……….
Murderous ………..…Was Her Attack…….

Was Hers a Moment Lost ……..?
The Bolting She …..Astounding was Her Rage…..
Was his a Moment Gained ……..?
He Clocked Her in a …………Metallic Cage…..

Today She runs in …………….Metallic Cables ….…..
Controlled by Buttons ……..Switches and Fuses ….…
Her Potential Characteristics Segmented in Slabs …….
Even for Moderate ……….Mortals’ Uses……

The Suns …The Moons …..The Stars …The Sky …
Into their Eldest ………The Time ……..They Fly …….
The Universal Dictum They Always Stressed …….
“What Even if You are from the Celestial Crest?”

Poet’s note –
Eternal laws of truth are to be adhered-to. Freedom is lost if you overstep.
