Celestial Cloudscapes

Secluded worlds hide secrets from our cold, prying eyes, suffocating starlight in the heat of their embrace.   Lost beneath the contrails of a smoggy methane haze, we conjure up impossible visions; draping distant lands in sparkling, precious mists.   Ruby clouds dissipate, buried in the plausibility of every grain …

The Weight of Martian Water

Peeling back the blackened veins of ancient crust, forgotten fragments whisper soggy secrets. Their enforced exile loosening tongues that now bubble over with stories of impossible waterways – teeming canals that once sang with the sound of a thousand babbling brooks.   Beneath a sterile gaze, these rusted reservoirs divulge …

Beneath an Iron Sky

In the irascible search for life the faint twinkling of distant stars expose giant globes of gaseous ferocity; their inferred magnitude drifting too close to their sun, falling like Icarus into a labyrinth of tidal force.   As the searing heat scorches the barren sky, estranged metals disperse into the …

Ancient Rings of Time

Giant clams lie settled atop distant mountain peaks; their arid husks supressing the brackish smell of ancient waves that once bathed them in their shallow, dampened beds.   Peeling back the layers with chemical precision, we read huddled rings like geological Tarots; tealeaves strained by Gaia’s aged sieve.   Calcified …

Moulded Galaxies

Emerging from chaos, filaments of matter weave their nets; unclassifiable structures that stretch across the emptiness as ethereal webs that glisten in the dewy dawn.   Barely trodden paths glow faintly in the dark; celestial causeways that …

Stellar Snow

Beneath pristine packs of southern snow Echoes of a violent past lay scattered; Lost amongst the landscape like fragments Of half-remembered, ancient dreams, These imprints of impossible ferocity Permeate the permafrost with their Sparse, unnatural presence.   Carefully              we              sieve                    the Frozen              dust,          shaking …

A River of Stars

A dynasty of diamonds in the sky, You stretch beyond the hemispheres of sight Scattering stardust like lavish silt as Unseen tidal forces conspire to tear you apart.   A stellar stream that meanders across space, Undulating gently out of reach As two parallel lanes of celestial eddies That softly …

Raining Rings

Perched on the edge of perception – Six concentric rings of water, ice, And dust rotate. To the untrained eye you appear Frozen in time. An ancient halo of steadfast Proportions.   But in between the sheets of rock And air your certainty is Wavering. There’s a push and a …

A Blemish in Our Atmosphere

Between the curves where space and sky entwine, The air is stripped by violent, solar flow; A savagery inherently benign, When matched with what arises from below.   The shockwaves of our past can still be felt, Revealing every blow as it was dealt; As ripples found in time unveil …
