Dreams Beyond Dreams

There are places out in space that beg the question of why, abiding where dreams embrace our infinite inner sky. Stargazers pay attention to sidereal pathways, tracing every dimension, some using astral math ways. Scientists study each fact and what their instruments find of astronomic impact in terms of matter and mind. The poets wordily lithe of celestial wonders sing with lofty spirits and blithe as upward their fancies wing. Throughout human death and birth we’ve gazed at the heavens awed while creating hell on earth through cause and effect that’s flawed. We see not with precision through mortal perceptions, but with illusory vision pretentiously say what’s what. And yet, if the truth be told, in our braggadocio of verities we behold, how little we truly know! There are dreams beyond our dreams that fly in the face of fear, where all is more than it seems to casual eye and ear. In evolution stellar a flash was observed in view from dying cosmic dweller that brought it to life anew… If stars come back from the dead reborn in a blaze of light, who knows what might lie ahead beyond our limited sight? ~ Harley White * * * * * * * * * Inspiration for poem derived from article with image ~ "Astronomers observe star reborn in a flash"… "An international team of astronomers using Hubble have been able to study stellar evolution in real time. Over a period of 30 years dramatic increases in the temperature of the star SAO 244567 have been observed. Now the star is cooling again, having been reborn into an earlier phase of stellar evolution. This makes it the first reborn star to have been observed during both the heating and cooling stages of rebirth."

It's so beautiful that I'd rather being quiet today. Let me say one thing only: you're a true poet, Harley.

Thank you. What a lovely thing to say! Actually, I don't call myself a poet, but rather someone who writes poetry.
