Out There

As I went into the August night:

Up in the inky tapestry of stars

A formless blue brilliance

Filled the dizzying expanse

And sang of its boundless home.

The vastness of deep space:

Within its abysmal blackness

Winking pinpoints of light

Burn with hues of a

Celestial paint palette.

The coldness of the cosmos:

Within its infinite depths

Giants of gas and rock

Orbit with sister planets

And jagged icy moons.

The savageness of the galaxy:

Within its airless void

Constellations of swirling dust

Die with explosive rage

To be scattered into countless atoms.
