“Time and Space”: A Sequence of Tanka Poems

Time and space, matter,
energy, gravity, light:—
the laws of physics,
both known and unknown, and we're
the Children of the Big Bang.

Into the night sky
I gaze, awed by time and space
and the wide expanse
of the Milky Way, a dot
among endless galaxies.

Through this soup and stew
of time and space, dark matter,
and dark energy
they spin and swirl and collide,
filling this grand universe!

Our own Milky Way
formed from this vast time and space
and sprouted our Earth—
this blue orb (circling the Sun),
the cradle of all known life.

Time and space, matter,
energy, gravity, light:—
the laws of physics,
both known and unknown, and we're
the Children of this Cosmos.

Structurally well-put. I like the way you have blended science and poetry together. Well-writ indeed!
