In All the World (Day 289)

Not a care 
  exists 
    in all 
    the world
for us
   our dreams 
   our lies  our loves
   our losses
beyond our own

sun  
   moon  
      distant 
   spiraling 
galaxies 
     none will 
pause 

for a single 
moment  consider 
or disregard 
our empires of 
self/importance 

we can 
rest peacefully
in this 
knowledge  take 
solace  and 
breathe awhile.
