Spark of Life Tanka for Stephen Hawking

Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. -- Stephen Hawking

looking up
from A Brief History of Time
to the stars ...
I recite his speech,
each word a spark of life
