A lot can happen in 60 seconds and even more in a minute.
You can floss your teeth
and tie your shoes
or blink 12 times within it!
A hummingbird flaps 4,000 times,
there are 59 weddings
and 3 parking fines
300 lightning strikes hit Earth.
250 mothers give birth.
5 earthquakes rattle the world someplace,
but have you ever wondered what happens in space?
For every minute of every day
there’s a cosmic supernova display.
Fireworks on the grandest scale,
a blinding, flashing starburst wail,
as 60 stars begin to implode
their cores superheating until they explode.
Who’d have thought there was that much power?
Makes me wonder what happens each hour.
