Dawn or Apocalypse

Sunset, Midway Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, United States of America
There are places in this world
Which take me back in time
Or is it forward?
I don’t know

Is this the dawn of time?
Or apocalypse?
The beginning of life?
Or the end of it?

No matter, either way
I imagine an atmosphere
Unfriendly to inconsequential life forms
Like me

While the Earth
Still turns
Round and round
The sun
