14,567 million years ago

14,567 million years ago
Give-or-take 240 million months
The universe originated
It all began at once

Space started developing
The universe and galaxies
Over the next 14 billion years
Became everything we now see

Without that single moment
All those billions of hours ago
There'd be nothing here at all
Literally nothing that we know


This poem was inspired by stargazing live 2013.  Go watch it on BBC iPlayer now, you won't regret it.
