Space Delta

A one line poem for LaMar Going’s Chalkboard prompt “Space”

A spark bridges a gap,

Creating all that is;

Without here and there, no space would exist,

No movement would animate the universe,

Open-ended, zero entropy, no excitement,

No sparkling light emissions, no reactions of life —

Space is change,

Space is imagination made manifest.
