In slumber now and thence to dream
of space-time’s stirred and curving sweep,
where stellar furies set agleam
the velvet thrall of endless deep.
Here among a billion suns,
solo Klieg cues nascent spark.
Ensuing life o'er eon runs
ere treading path of torpid dark.
Adorned in crystal, its bequest—
fusion’s fire did else abate—
bejeweled then, this orb compressed,
a diamond’s remnants lie and wait.
Yet perish need to search the endless skies—
diamonds sparkle here in lovely eyes.
Mark B. Peterson for A Diamond's Remnants contest. Suggestion for Shakespearean Sonnet form by Andrea.
The dead star that inspired this poem--the companion of the star 55 Cancri, in the constellation of Cancer the Crab--has now shrunk to only about twice the size of earth yet is extraordinarily massive, leading astronomers to conclude that its surface and outer crust consist entirely of diamond.
You were a shining Star.
Few of many in the sky.
Looking up so very high,
Not knowing why you are.
Close and set you are far.
Spinning flames knot a tie,
I note a pattern just like pi.
Colliding with me you spar.
So burn it up and burn away,
Sow your heart upon a plane.
Chart your distance in the clay.
Burn it all up then call it sane.
The explosion in the sky is His death.
All burned up He has no last breath.

Laying down on my back I look straight up
Sky’s filled with small dots and the moon’s a cup
Specks are bright with a very brilliant white
They are awesome to see, a gorgeous sight
The stars bring an aura to me with life
No problems in the world I see, no strife
I relax when the dots are before me
Superior is their glow, completely
As I lay on the ground I do notice
This sky harbors peace within its darkness
For the moon and the stars sure envelope
The unmoving specks of light develop
The stars move me in my heart seeing true
Revealing to me how much I love you
Let me carry you to a waiting star,
With this kiss on your lips, we’ll reach that far
Leave behind all that encumbers your soul
On pristine whiteness with me take a stroll
Hold my hand as I lead you to a place
Where you ‘ll be blanketed in love’s embrace
There is no echo and no living sound
As you and I tumble down to the ground
This rendezvous star is for you and me
There’s no one else our love making to see
We sprinkle stardust as we toss and turn
Temperatures rise as the star starts to burn
The small earth is millions of miles away…
On this throbbing star, forever…please stay…

Voyager 1’s “The Sounds Of Earth”
Eleven billion miles from the sun
a record, golden when it left these parts,
a runaway hit on Voyager One,
at Ophiuchus, sure to top the charts,
will introduce Mozart to other stars,
not to mention Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode”.
The knock-offs sold in alien bazaars
will knock their socks off or at least it should
make them extend their eyestalks in surprise.
They’ll soon begin to learn to sing along
to whales recorded and the baby’s cries —
adepts might even master Earth’s birdsong.
Should Beethoven not prove to be their fave,
Then Guan PingHu’s GuQin could be their rave.
Past harmless comets, a bear yet stands,
High over warm berths watch old legends spar,
This hunter knows how a night can expand
For I faced Ursa Major by tracking stars.
Sagittarius kneels, his stance is too still,
The mighty centaur intensely implores,
But this bear rages on, forever will,
Shining its white fangs in a soundless roar.
Eternal this struggle, endless this night,
I grieve the absence of flesh and bone,
While clouds gather, rays mass in delight,
Myth remains, unyielding and alone.
No pardon or rest from these constellations.
Gazers, pray for me, always, Orion.
above an autumn's moonlit sky
'twas there in flight, a hurtled star
then visions land as from afar
what wants 'came focused on mind's eye
was it shining gold that called?
a better man it's left enthralled
fame and power? the skill to jest?
so many dreams, thy brain was mauled
but out from selfish musings sung
a thought so single, bright, and true!
on crisp night air I felt it hung
it melted over, then I knew
for next to me my lover strode
i wished for us a sweet abode
It is all in the Stars if you look hard enough.
There is always the morning Star twinkling.
And then there is the evening Star blinking.
And then there are layered clouds in a fluff.
Then there is the Sun and Moon and stuff.
Sometimes it looks like the Moons winking.
Sometimes it looks like the Sun is thinking.
Makes me wonder if their day can be rough!
What a wondrous world I live in.
What balance I live by every day.
My life must be granted and given.
So no wonder I take time to pray.
It is granted and given each day just to be me.
Just look up once a day and this you can see.

I just lost my love and find her I must.
The thoughts of her drift through the open skies.
Reaching to touch her but bringing back dust,
And the tears that have fallen from my eyes.
To her I gave up all my affection.
Gazing into the night to see her face.
A star always shoots in that direction,
And I know she is in a better place.
I will always worship her golden lights,
Her love, her beauty, and her faithful touch,
That shines through every star in each night.
Giving her all my love is not even enough.
She contains no flaws in any feature.
In my eyes, she is God’s greatest creature.
I gaze upon the vast night sky
And I saw a star that caught my eye
I watched the star as it twinkled bright
And wondered about its ancient light
Obeying only the universal laws
Unconcerned by the effect and cause
Destruction and creation are sublime
And exist in the very same moment in time
I wondered if it had ceased to be
And only its past is to be shown to me
From a million eons long ago
I am blessed tonight by a brilliant glow
But I know if it ever seems to be gone
It is only evolving and ready to move on
