A Cycle


Helium. Hydrogen. Heat.
An emptiness. A star. A Void.
Helium. Hydrogen. Heat.

Timelessness. A Time. Timelessness.
Helium. Hydrogen. Heat.
Birth. Life. Death.

Helium. Hydrogen. Heat.
Nothing. Something. Nothing.
Helium. Hydrogen. Heat.

The wonder of this universe!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

During my early years in University I was enrolled in the Science program. Later I switched my studies towards an Arts in Science degree. Even later I again switched to Economics and Philosophy. In my time one needed to have completed 21 full time (annual) courses to obtain a degree. n my case I completed thirty some odd courses before getting my degree - and this, due to the program changes made along the way. This poem was written in the mid '60s but reflects both artistic and scientific qualities.
