The Major Star

The major star who was hundreds of centuries old
was finally dieing yet not in vain, for with its death
comes new life and new planets formed as it splinters

Water so cool and clear
life giving to all our worlds
stars birth formed you

As a star dies the gases ignite and fuse into droplets
these then are carried to other worlds to start new life
Scientists believe that all life came from these deaths

Moonshine beams dancing
causing flickering shadows
that dance joyously

Our own moon and all the sun's orbiting planets were
formed in one of these explosions. All we see and touch
came from a dieing major star

Sunbeams hit the water
refracting and enhancing
the crystal river
 
Sometime in the future our own major star the Sun will
die leaving life as we know it gone yet as prophets
have said death is the start of rebirth so lets enjoy our stars

Stars hide their faces
behind the fluffy white cloud
just an odd twinkle

    Formations lead to reformations and again formation, a cycle of birth and death. Beautifully done by giving reference to the science. Excellent magic. Loved always, bl

    I can see that you must really like astronomy!! And I like how you made it easy to relate the stars and the sun to us all!

    We cannot forget about the hands that formed the stars and placed them all so carefully. If we see the complexity of the very large and the infinitely small there can be no doubt of an intelligence beyond our comprehension. Still it is good that we humans seek to think beyond ourselves. A thought provoking piece Shadow.
