Big Bang (19" x 23") painting by the author 2012
Once upon a distant past, a proto mass
of converging gases, too huge
to hold on in space exploded -
the Big Bang like a centrifuge.
Born the universe and galaxies
in countless numbers expanding,
countless more, orphans in space,
our known world but a sibling.
Were this true - life so little do we know
today from its very spawn;
move over Oparin, move over Darwin,
theories past and our own ~
