Universe in Balance

rubens apollo 2
Apollo in the chariot of the sun by Peter Paul Rubens, c.1621-1625.
From the Lichtenstein Princely Collections.

Apollo, in his
chariot, crosses the skies
ablaze with color.

Darkness encroaches,
sun sinks slowly below the
horizon. Nightfall.

Silence reigns, the odd,
eerie sound breaking through the
stillness. Daylight hides.

The celebration
begins. Spirits dance under
a blanket of stars.


Renewing, charging
humanity’s batteries
for morning’s approach.

Cycling through sun
and moon, daylight and dark night,
the rhythms of life.

We are born, we die.
Nature, the universe. An
exquisite balance.
