Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

A matter of perspective!

In between the first cry

and the last breath

we live our lives,

dominate the earth.

It appears

long enough to be termed

a life time!

 The wider picture seen

from the infinite cosmic universe

changes perspectives.

Eras shrink to insignificance,

only to realise,

In the end,

we were just a moment!

Godoggocafe’s Tuesday Writing Prompt :Write a piece of prose or poetry that ends with,” in the end, we were just a moment.

    That perspective is so true and so humbling. One lifetime is indeed only a moment in time, and we need to live the moment fully and relish it before our time runs out. That is the only way to make that short moment count, else it will be lost in the vast cosmic expanse of time.

    And you so well constructed this poem just to end with this beautiful line.
    And it’s true too, in the end we are all just moments.

    Too good Radhika ✨

    Wow Radhika. I loved your thought. Actually from cosmic perspective even the Earth appears as a tiny speck and us even tinier.

    “Eras shrink to insignificance”: oh, it’s so true. That’s a great and thoughtful. Today will mean almost nothing to the future. A somewhat sad reality to life. But then also hopeful in that you can start fresh each day.
