J.B. Drori

In the center of zero,
In its core of darkness,
You’ll find infinity,
Where stars are spawned.

In the belly of black holes
Photons explode and stars sizzle,
Emitting fusing matter and energy.
Suns are born.

Unfettered, unherded, our particles arrive
From the farthest reaches
To bind to body and mind
Human form and spirit.

Yet we yearn to behold
The receding crimson shoreline,
Where end and beginning be,
Where eternity commences.

There sorrow is joy,
Pain is pleasure.
There death and life merge.
And all is one.
