Pulsing

Civilizations built.
Decisions made.
Billions
of decisions!
Whether to
turn left,
whether to
turn right,
whether to
go straight.
Each has
consequences.
Energy
pulsing off
the planet.
Each second
decision energy
layering history.
Butterfly effect
a billion times
a second.
Second after
second, billions
upon billions
of decisions
made.
Decisions,
energy
pulsing into
the void.
History.
Human history
being built 
as such.
Each decision
flows to its
own
unique future.
Billions of
unique
futures born
each second.
Second after
second.
Such is the
conundrum of
quantum mechanics.
Such is the
conundrum 
of infinity.

    Your style is pretty unique and refreshing, John. I like poetry about the state of existence and the hidden truths of the world. More people should be in to it if you ask me. A much enjoyed read.

      That conundrum of infinity has always been with us and always will be, but I know I have come from infinity and will be going to infinity. Another conundrum?

      Great write.
