Before The Big Bang

Rating: 5.0
What sparked the Big Bang?
Should we give a dang
how the experts debate
as to what might predate
it or seemed to exist?
Speaking for me,
I cannot resist

There are those that don’t care of the before but we would all be forced to admit, our roots are tied to that gulf of which we cannot explain, I find myself here too, yes..with that fantasy spree of drifting into that fathomless past.this is no place for closed minds, and absolutes must bow in humility at what they may find....what a masterpiece of poetry, it should be poem of the day and year! ! I will recommend it to poemhunter!

but the answer to such a baffling question as how did 'it' all begin is not of interest to me. if God were to knock on our front door with a convincing proof of Her existence (now or in the past) , i MIGHT go to church again! and over coffee and cookies i could ask Her the 'question'. But, would She remember? She must be getting pretty OLD! ! ! bri ;)

more favorite lines: No, perchance the Big Bang just didn't befall. It might not have happened at all.................the poem is a tour de force, and i don't use that term lightly! in fact, i may NEVER have used it on PH before now, nor outside PH. :) (to be continued) ..

brane noun Physics an extended object with any given number of dimensions, of which strings in string theory are examples with one dimension. Our universe is a 3-brane...............Who knew? NOT BRI, me. some favorite lines: I've lived countless lives of fairytale scale, had fanciful dreams far beyond the pale, even conceived of scenario grand in multi-braned bubbled baffling land ...........(to be continued; my comment?) .....
