Little Nothings

There are large nothings:
interstellar blackness
for example, dark matter
& the unfathomable
mid-depths of oceans
between life & light
& the volcanic bedrock;
also monstrous ones,
mostly in politics.

Not here. Nope. None
of that I’m afraid.

True insignificance:
a lone wildflower bloom
is a nothing much, really,
except a singularity
which in galactic multitude
makes a vast meadow
against which we measure
our idea of the scale
& beauty of mountains.
