The End of an Endless Empire

by Mary E. Lowd

Like a soap bubble
Pearlescent and perfect
Lasting only an instant
This empire reigned
Across the stars

For centuries upon centuries
Transcendent and wonderful
As long as it lasted
And, oh, how it lasted!

Lifetimes to us…
But the blink of an eye to a star
