Extragalactic Background Light

Why is the night sky dark

if the universe is filled

with billions of galaxies

with billions of stars

that have been emitting photons

for billions of years?

 

Why are lives so dark

if the world is filled

with billions of souls

lighting candles at sunset

and singing songs of praise

and wishing on the stars?

 

It has always been a question

of diffusion, of boundless space, of time.
