the milky way

 

the galaxy where our live's began and always do begin

 

it is tempting to think that with a Love-length to exhaust we would be itching to get out there among the furthest stars and see the wonders of the variations of this vast edifice

 

not so; by the time the Lover is with us we will have come to recognise the true marvel of existence

 

the overriding attraction filling our senses thoughts will be other man-shaped beings

 

the man-shaped being is the chrysalis which transforms into Euclidean that can persist into Eternity

 

indeed, the Linear shapes we become will still be the very beginning of their progress when the galaxies and the Universe are no more

 

both the galaxy and the universe are less than a Blink of an Eye compared to the time we spend moving along heaven's highway

 

still, we can wallow in the variation this galaxy has within its boundaries and perhaps in an idling millennium or two we can nip out to a far-flung corner of the galaxy and watch a side show where a range of mountains ten times bigger than the himalayas are being formed on a planet the size of Jupiter
