  • Event Horizon (Reposted)

    In memory of Stephen Hawking,
    Theoretical Physicist, 1942 - 2018

    You may see the shimmer
    Of my mysterious shoreline
    In the vast distance

    But take realistic note
    You will never arrive at my
    Dark swirling ocean

    No traveler across
    The endless expanse of time
    Disembarks at my shore

    Did it change from one
    Event Horizon othered
    by another one?
    I still Haiku-like it.

      Lonely reality. That's all I have.

        Beautifully written tribute, Tanner. So tell me, do you wonder where his soul is now? I like to think of all his questions being answered - it seems like that would be heaven to one with such an inquiring mind.

          I must, with some trepidation, disagree with RLW. . I suspect if all the questions were answered he would be bored.
          great tribute, nicely presented

            Great point RT! If joy is found in searching and discovery, complete knowledge might indeed fall flat. Clearly didn't think that one through with him in mind.

          Then again, nothing will be the same after crossing the event horizon; we can't bring anything with us. I think boredom is for the living.
