compared to the Earth,
to the solar system,
to the spiral arm,
to the galaxy,
to the galactic cluster,
to the galactic super-cluster,
I am so tiny,
a conscious speck amidst deep time,
(and deep time is from here
to the Victorian Age,
the Romans,
the Stone Age,
the first primates,
the dinosaurs,
the Cambrian,
single cell life,
Earth formation,
our Galaxy,
the early stars,
the Big Bang)
this now is so rare a thing
so precious beyond gold or diamonds

I breathe in star remnants,
Nitrogen, Oxygen and a touch
of Hydrogen (and others)
I am in awe
