Based on a photo by a friend of mine, Rich Contini.



One hundred and seventy five stars burned bright,

On the palms of his opened hands,

He captured their full power and plucked

Their never-ending strands,

By calling on lost planets,

To guide his spaceship home,

He then closed his hand upon them,

To retain their certain glow.



Countless universes tilted,

His fingertips pointed towards five suns,

Swirled lights in far-off galaxies,

Where an explorer’s mind yet runs,

Created a wanderer’s existence,

From the shells and shards of hope,

He measured out his future plans,

From the end of a telescope.



Etched within his lifeline,

Were the flickers of a comet’s tail,

Braided down his length of wrist,

To leave behind a dotted trail,

The line to his heart was shielded,

By the blur of a black hole night,

But the line to his head was revealing,

Many moons and a second sight.



His destiny remained hidden,

Though the heavens opened anew,

Pouring down in meteor showers,

The lone spaceship that he flew,

Back on earth or still in flight,

Maybe time will only tell,

Of the wisdom of that searching man,

Who from fallen stars once fell.

So whimsical and fanciful I was caught away in the verse. This elusive man of science captures stars in his hand.

In these carefully crafted lines, Michelle,
you have immortalized your friend's striking photo.
You too have painted a rhythmic masterpiece:

Etched within his lifeline,
Were the flickers of a cometís tail,
Braided down his length of wrist,
To leave behind a dotted trail...

Yours, in envy. -gene.

Original ways of looking into the mysteries of unending space, ah, that's always welcomed. Somewhere, I've a line in a poem that says "No God can create the universe, only infinity can." A mere anthropomorphic 'omnipotent being' can't possibly account for the vastness of it all.
Take care.
