Pray we are alone in the universe, for in my dreams, I have seen the death of worlds in butterfly kisses.

Slashing across
galactic cores...

ripping through
the dark matter
hearts of nebula...

chomping comets
looping sunward...

her iridescent wings
are lit by the storms
of ultimate void.

Skimming the rings
of Saturn,
braving Jupiter's
brazen eye,
the fluttering blades
of judgement spear
past the guard of mars.

And green Terra shines
like a jewel to welcome
the engine
of her destruction.
For the great destroyer
seeks a place
to nest and breed and rear
her unborn brood.

the murderous beauty
of the cosmic butterfly!

LEE, such excellance you have penned here and a message that flies expediantly (I hope) out into that dark starfilled night void!
Reviewed by Leland Waldrip 8/21/2003
Excellent, Lee. I have often wondered what in the heck SETI has in mind, probing the universe for ET. Odds are, any life less intelligent than us will not be able to understand and respond. That leaves life of equal or more intelligence or technical advancement. Our own Earth history shows what happens when a more advanced culture encounters a less advanced one. If the less advanced culture is lucky, it gets absorbed into the more advanced culture. If not, it gets wiped out. This puts us in the position of a rabbit squealing to the coyotes for attention. Don't make sense to me.
