Gifted with a gorgeous imagination,
And inspired to peep into the dark void of the cosmos,
He glimpsed blinding, darting, comets of comprehension.
Even as his body would not yield to the commands of his mind,
He took a deep dive into the unfathomable sea of physical nothingness,
And came up with nuggets and pearls of mysterious insight.
His mercurial mind expanded into the universe,
Untrammeled by a leaden body.
The mind triumphed.
As he’s sucked into the black hole of eternity,
I wonder whether the mind of God
Has finally been revealed unto Stephen Hawking.
