SPACE

Anciently position of objects
no space without them, then
it became a container, superior
to all contained therein
an independent cause of
inertial behavior, coordinates
were added, geometry of expanse
property enabling phenomena
to extend in three, mutually
perpendicular directions
until time became the fourth
dimension, along the way
we had intuition, vastness of
imagination in our small head
quantum universe, smallest amount
in a speck of dust or invisible atoms
also fields were discovered
influence of bodies on each other
density of energy, so today
mass/energy curves space/time
as space/time moves us on.
