A Plasmatic Prisoner of Time

Listen to poem:
I am, for that I am a super-giant a magnificent monstrosity, A ferocious fired fury beyond the Pillars of Creation; With a billion breaths that burn within me, and yet I am; A calamitous candle amidst the unending universe. A plasmatic prisoner of time-a destroyer and creator… I am a beacon of brilliant brightness, a raging radiance. I exist within a balanced hydrostatic equilibrium, Upon the fear of a gravitational collapse, yet I combust; I have witnessed much destruction and many creations, Nuclear fusion of hydrogen into helium keeps me bursting; My rays of phosphorescence are no match for the darkness, As my emanation comforts my children the rotating planets, I grow weaker by the solar day for my exudation will expire me... I am a bulb burning bright, a flashing flare about to go

Enjoyed the voice you gave to a super star, WW, in this stunning write. So true:..I grow weaker by the solar day for my exudation will expire me...I am a bulb burning bright, a flashing flare about to go..

WoW! I can see it my mind's eye. Really something. Too bad the beauty of a supernova only means the death of a star. Great job here. God Bless, JB

For sure -- the omnipotent power of creation and destruction, no more greatly expressed than by the wonderment of stars. Then to see them in ourselves, that moment of realization, is breathtaking. Great read!
