One Life

One life,

a dot

on the spectrum

of eternity

 

Millennia stretches

prior and beyond

one’s life

 

A mere 80 years

to stash meaning

into one life

 

One life

amid the billions

before, with, after

 

Begun in darkness,

a meagre torch bulb

in the night sky,

which fades to black,

 

This

one life
