“Somehow We Live and Die Again” ~ poem by Richard Brautigan


Somehow we live and die again,"Eye of God" - image from Hubble telescope
I wonder why to me it just seems
     another beginning.
Everything leads to something else, so
     I think I’ll start
          over again.
Maybe I’ll learn something new
Maybe I won’t
Maybe it will just be the same
     beginning again
Time goes fast
     for no reason
Because it all starts
     over again
I’m not going anyplacehalo
except where I’ve
     been before.

    How true: each of us has lived many times, in the past, as part of someone or something else. And we’ll live again as someone or something else. Matter and energy can neither be created nor destroyed. I like to think at one time I rose on a planet, populated by an intelligent species, as a bright and shining star. Evidently, we share the same thoughts, as your pictures indicate 🙂
