Ultimate Mystery - Poem by Lonnie Hicks

If dark matter and energy comprise
most of the universe
then most of what we see is
bounded by limitlessness-
most, is therefore unknown..

How profound
is this?
The suspicion grows
from hint to sentiment
that what we think of
as dead matter
might be alive.

If the Universe is expanding
and surely it is
then Big Bang Theory
might be simple growth.

The suspicion grows from hint
to sentiment
that dead matter is in fact alive.

If sub-atomic uncertainty
is true
and quantum physics says it is
we then must contemplate that
electrons
pop in and out of existence.

Here and not here;

In this world and not in this world.
A hint: multiple existences.

The air I breath
is ultimate mystery
for not only I
but it
must also be alive.
