The Extreme Gravity/Distorted Reality Show

Black Hole at the Centerbald eagle

 Eagle Galaxy
remnant of an exploding star
a fading celebrity avatar
emits no light
casts no glow
gas and static are its outflow*
the raspy noise
of promise unkept
opportunity squandered
challenge unmet
collapsing brilliance
of heat without warmth
and mass without weight
swallows attempts to communicate
as space and time warp and bend
perception fails to comprehend
the extreme gravity of distorted reality
*Listen to a black hole.
a general description of black holes
black hole at the center of our Milky Way

    Wow – this is a beautiful and astonishing poem. And that recording is utterly spine-tingling – I think I will dream of these vast, mind-blowing mysteries tonight. How wonderful!

      Dear Bluebee, Thank you so much! The mind reels, doesn’t it? I’d love to be able to dream about something so beautiful and utterly out of our control.
