Far and near

Eyes in the sky, aided by glass and mirror, fail to see

The far reaches of the universe, as elegant mathematical

Equations can, these have birthed in human mind

Which is the near field, where we park our consciousness

But it is at the outer limits of the inner universe

The body cannot travel far, held by gravity’s puppeteer strings

The mind orbits in the far lanes of the vast inner expanse

Two vehicles we stake our lives on, have left us precariously perched

As we cling to what’s near and dear, even if is far from reality

A difficult balance, the mind is well conditioned, easily adapting

In its throes, the journey’s entertaining, but the destination is far away

By casting aside eyes and equations, what’s out of reach quickly comes near
