so near and so far
an atom and a star
relative in importance
to exactly where you are

so long and so short
the alleyway and the court
the waves and the sea
beneath a ship waiting at port

so high and so low
the tension of the bow
so much to accomplish
before the start of the show

so fast and so slow
watch as the river flows
the sun shining down
creates a mesmerizing glow

so soft and so loud
footsteps lost in the crowd
a voice heard in the distance
as the moon rises through a cloud

so dreamlike and so real
time and space form the wheel
drawn together by fate
like the wax and the seal
