The Prestige of Heaven

Wonderstruck by the fact that the same elements in this swirling star-swarm compose our bodies, our neurology, I resonate with deeper wonder yet at what is wondering – and more: that a ‘what’ has become a ‘who’ who wonders at this stellar beauty in this shining vastness measured in light years … a ‘who’ with the capacity to ponder what ‘beauty’ and ‘wonder’ might themselves be, measureless qualities that we certainly experience yet cannot define even as we perceive and comprehend the physical range of 12 million light years that the photons of spiral galaxy M81 spanned to reach us and inspire in the ‘who’ of our ‘what’ these ineffable events of beauty and wonder.
