Adrift

by Barry Charman

A pirouetting astronaut
Adrift
Has gone too far

He weeps into his soul
And the everlasting void
Embraces him

The event horizon
Of a black hole
Blinks

This death has more audacity
Than hope
He loses himself to awe

This yawning God
Abases itself
To allow his passing

The stars are dancing
Fear is altered by beauty
And such an ending

Nothing dies
That has seen eternity
Without becoming a part
