An Invitation

How to compare, to our universe of grandeur?
Is there hope for our eternal home to stack up?

Never.

It needs first reach your lustrous beauty; it can not.
Its wonder should then surpass your own? It does not.
It must surely intrigue to a finer degree? Nay,
Its sheer seniority should give it top value?

No, in this mortal coil exists not one body,
Not one object that can claim itself superior.

Gravitational collapse, systemic reboot,
Those are all the vast cosmos can do to compete.

Quite lesser it may be, far and wide it may stretch,
Our grand universe is worth sharing only with you.

Let’s traverse as much as we can from this planet,
Touring the depths with our minds, hearts, and quintessence.
