Puniness in the Awesome Scheme of Things

Fortuitously the cosmos has lined up a celestial event that speaks to the puniness of humankind. Hopefully this amazing event will spawn a lot more humility on Earth. In recognition of the solar eclipse of August 21st I am posting a poem I wrote years ago. It gets at that feeling of puniness in the awesome scheme of things. It can be found in my book Thoughts From A Contemplative Beast.
Faithfully yours,

Sheila Banks

In the Ever-flowing Universe

Exterior to all the clamour and the glamour
a sliver of a silvery moon hangs in the balance.
Where the hills kiss the night sky,
the crimson glow of the horizon
declares the position of the setting sun.

As the Earth turns,
that great ball of light and heat
suspended in a star-studded void,
plays out its part in the cosmic fire dance.
