Lakes of metallic hydrogen, drifts of chromium snow... Touched by spaceships created from enigmas of equations. We could have been there by now, standing on the shores of alien lakes. So sad...
1054, the year of the Great Schism.
Pollocked words on canvas cast,
But instead of stainless steel or fields of flowers vast,
We read revelations of rust and dust.
Is it Zen or is it Tao, or is it the koan's cat's Meow.
Buddha Nature and Nirvana calling,
Will YOU feed the child who's crying?
Crab Nebula explosion/formation in Cancer - 1054 AD.
Only the Chinese eagerly recorded this singular astronomical event.
The West, stuck in its Dark Age morass, wouldn't acknowledge such an anomaly in God's Perfect Creation, tho' it was OBVIOUSLY there for all to see!
Glad THAT'S behind us, now.
