birdlings in space s

Here are stars:
galaxied deceit,
time echoed
in jeweled
mirrors, images captured
perfect and untouched

Silver hands
with golden voices:
waves disguised
as dances,
unbeholden to any
partnering of song

chasing satellites:
held in light journeying far
from harbors unknown

Extreme star cluster bursts into life in new Hubble image

It’s draw-a-bird day once again, and since I haven’t drawn any birds recently, the birdlings are filling in.  Also I would say I’m killing several prompts with one stone, but no killing on this blog–birds, prompts, or otherwise.

birdlings in space 2s

The dVerse Hubble Space prompt (see photo above) fits in nicely with Jane Dougherty’s day 7 Yeats quote from ‘To the Rose Upon the Rood of Time’

‘…stars, grown old

In dancing silver-sandalled on the sea,

Sing in their high and lonely melody.’

and I’ve managed 3 more shadorma verses for the along the interstice November shadorma challenge too.

Happy Draw-a-Bird day!  But every day is a good day for thinking about birds, the cosmos, or poetry.

    I love the birds in their finery. I agree with Jane…the “tapestry of words” says it all.

    Very much enjoyed this! Especially the description you include of the Hubble itself (at least that’s what I’m thinking this is alluding to)
    “ime echoed
    in jeweled

    perfect and untouched”

    A wonderful post to the Hubble prompt! Glad you participated 🙂

    I like that “journeying far
    from harbors unknown” at the end.

    I love everything about this.
    It is so beautiful–stars (yours sing and dance, too), poetry, and art. Sigh.
