Diamond in the Sky

A 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.

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 cued 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.

Dream Keeper

The moon and stars, together scheme
to trespass, searching through the air
until they find my window sill  -
Caressing me with fragile streams
their fingers, stroking, tussled hair
as tender as a mother will

As if to keep my dreams alive
they keep a watch against the dawn
and calm me in my restless sleep -
I'll let the gentle night contrive
a plan to help me sail upon
a cloud, where dreams are mine to keep

The moon and stars together scheme
As if to keep my dreams alive

Last Breath

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.

ORION: A PERSPECTIVE for third to tenth

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.

Dusk Interplayed

See the light, the empowering red light Covering our bodies it does imbue Orange, yellow caress my every sight Dusk at its best surrounding our delight Clouds impose beauty, coalescing you The sliver of the moon imparts with might The North Star shines brightly in the night sky Where dusk just slightly starts to fade away Surely the intriguing night does imply Clouds fly through as we breathe in its essence Now turned silver and nearing dark I say Dusk is a memory in our presence See the light, the empowering red light The North Star shines brightly in the night sky Contest: Cornish Sonnet Sponsor: Craig Cornish 3/11/2013

Revealing to Me

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

4 Star General

What reasoning is there to study war
and then not turn them loose, in violent rage,
to bring catastrophe forevermore
to near-life who should be put in a cage?

the book of truth from histories remiss,
they laboured with, at West Point every night!
Napoleanic in their sacred bliss
could we deny what is a warriors right?

The stars upon their shoulders, bear with me,
they'll bury every dove in their own waste,
and those not dead will raise the flag and plea,
for Generals to save them in great haste!

       You'll not have any part of them until
         your only choice, is turn them loose to kill.

Rendezvous On A Star

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…

Promising Sky

An enormous full moon
Filters through the tree limbs
There is no feeling of gloom
Even though darkness swims

Stars twinkle with delight
Amid the cloudless sky
There is no need for fright
A clear pathway is nigh

No photograph could reflect
The splendor of this moment
With only the night to connect
My heart with the sky’s movement	

Moon and stars remind me why
I so very much love the sky

Topping The Star Charts

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.
