Far, far away in the stellar night
we see mysterious clouds of galactic light.
These distant fires warm our tired brains
and help our dreams escape their earthly chains.
Many have minds that crave to fly free
but are caught in the grip of eternity
they’re always rolling stones uphill
killing their hopes for glorious free will.
It’s time to let a million flowers bloom
to give joy and dispel the chilling gloom!
When there’s an end to exploitation and strife
everyone can focus on a better life.

As a child on a farm
I knew the totality of creation
(and in that wonder life had no end).
The seasons and the extremes
represented all that we knew
and all that might be known...
Gazing at life in a pond,
the dew on a summer meadow,
the tundra on a winter beach...
life is forever
if we are happy to the end.
