etching essential patterns

800px-Young_Galaxy_Accreting_MaterialOh! the brilliant suns,
the gyrating galaxies
strumming the music of the Universe,
its coruscating rhythms,
they’re all of a piece
infiltrating life
finding the interstitial places
filling every emptiness,
etching essential patterns
onto everything and into each
expression of our being

  1. I much enjoy poetry that blends science and a bit of esoteric reflection. I’ve been wanting to work a sonnet and today I was playing with an idea about the stars…hasn’t gone anywhere yet.


    • I do too; but, I don’t know enough to be sure I’m accurate. I look things up, but who knows ??!! 🙂 Look forward to seeing what you do.


Thank you!
