The Permanence of Tomorrow

The Permanence of Tomorrow

written by: Bruce Levine

The arithmetic of sensations
Floating down like a midnight snowfall
Illuminated by the light of a street lamp
Set adrift across a blackened starless sky

Time bent in Einsteinian theory
As the new moon prepares its evolution
And the momentum of its gravitational pull
In the wake of the tide’s repetition

Just as the cosmic pull of the universe
The corpuscles of living organisms
Neurons and protons of a single atom
Affixed in cellular reproduction

Amid the widening birth of eternity
Built on the reality of the cycles of nature
Embossed with gold leaf hieroglyphs
Defining the permanence of tomorrow
