Of Things Large And Small - Poem by Roy S. Richardson

In the blinking of an eye
On the vast eyelid plain.
The microscopic beast
Roared and stamped his foot
And in the millennium of his reign
Let fall his trunk into the dust.

In one far off place
A massive particle
Exploded into time
And began its journey outward
Until outer limits reached,
The coiling trunk receding,
Touched the moisture of his tongue.
