Is This the End?

Is this the end of everything you were? A burst of light, a hurried, fractious blur. The final breath into the distant night, Reminding us of how you once burnt bright; Fond memories that you wish could reoccur.   The ending from which you could not deter, Your sunburnt gold now turned to blackened myrrh; … Read more

Squalls on Distant Seas

You spin against opaque and barren skies, An ancient god now floating in the deep; Your secrets hidden from our prying eyes, An azure giant frozen deep in sleep.   Across your marbled surface storm clouds race, With weathered patterns we are yet to trace; The gloaming peels away your dim veneer, A stolen glance … Read more

A Distant Dawn

The empty cupboards of our Universe Are filled with neutral cobwebs of potential; All of them waiting for an opportunity To blaze into life and burn away the haze.   The earliest galaxies glimmered quietly As they waited for the fog to disperse; ­ Trailblazers that reveal hidden lines And show us where to turn … Read more

The Skies Perpetually Revolve in Vain

Out amongst the dense, and yet seemingly empty fabric of space the Plasma starts to accrue, piercing through distant lands and unseen skies.   Building up into supermassive jets that extend beyond galaxies and perpetually Infiltrate our tiny collective consciousness, every time we happen to revolve.   A gentle ripple through the dark drapery splits … Read more

From nothing came a burst of blinding light, With waves that trickled out to every shore; For eons, they were hidden out of sight, Just shimmers of some swift cosmic encore.   But now these ancient signals are revealed, Structures since built contaminate their yield.

In Search of New Life

Far into space, amongst the darkest Sea New planets sit like marbles in a row. We turn our eyes to find out what might be And search for patterns in their ether’s flow; Then try to see what else might lie below. And as we probe how life’s rich web was spun, Do they look … Read more

Solar Stranding

The waves assault an unfamiliar shore, As bodies writhe beneath the azure sheet; And astral squalls prepare their tools of war.   Cascading whitecaps far above the floor Conceal the lines where sky and ocean meet; The waves assault an unfamiliar shore.   Gigantic bubbles venture to explore Beyond the confines of their solar heat; … Read more

A Fake Diamond in the Sky

Your pockmarked face conceals a hidden truth, Guarding your age like some resentful crone And leading us astray with dreams of youth. A replica of our most precious stone, Brought down by men whose footsteps fouled your home, Reveals to us when your decay set in. Your secret is no longer one you own; We … Read more

The Leap Second

Time is reality – A reality that we have broken down And subjugated by splitting it into fractions That match the constructs Of our lives and actions. Thinking that we can constrain Its ceaseless movement by Deciding to refrain From measuring it in solar days or atomic units.   The people in charge have told … Read more

We Are All Made of Stars

13.8 billion years ago the universe EXPLODED into life Cutting through space time like a celestial knife Through butter and Bringing with it every permutation And combination of events that Will ever occur. The remnants of that blast Forgot the heat of their ferocious past, And the tiny particles came together To form elements of … Read more
