From the Stars

After the bang, burning
sound and light from indefinite drift
expanding red and blueshifts

now blanketed, we sit
I shiver
at your touch, burning

heat and cold, turning
sound and light

the stardust trapped within
our cells, a microcosmβ€”

Yes! I see it now.

A quadrille for my dVerse prompt today. The prompt word is shiver. Join us!

  1. That was special – very, really original, clever, and comparing the hugeness of the cosmos, of time, to the intensity of what was within was masterful…very nice..

  2. So lovely!!! Love this one…”The stardust trapped within…” Enchanting is the only word I can come up with. But then, with your poems, enchanting is a word that often comes to me! I just get swept away with the whole thing…

  3. Wow, this is Superb! (btw, I don’t follow comments, so no reply needed). I love the analogy, the feelings — amazing. (Oh, and thanx for your comment, and especially the typo suggestions — I fixed it)
