Drifts

by The Cheesesellers Wife

Nebulaic drift of space glows pregnant with stars
Pulsates with unseen radiation, reflects light upon broken hulls
Billowing gases thread through holes laced by stellar blasts
Huge gas pillars glow with the light from star birth

The Difference Between Me And You

by JJ Merryweather

sam_9390I think there’s been a misunderstanding.

I like rain storms, not brain storms

Real streams, not work streams

Connected

by Frank Hubeny

If there’s a way from x to y
The space in which points live and die
Is more or less connected.

Eldritch Abominate Creatures – ‘The Translucent Hyperrider’

by OrangeDilip

Somewhere in the farthest galaxy…

creatures-1

Neon translucent membrane
glow for every hyperride
Electric Lime sprinklings are
hyperspace take offs
long bushy brown prickles
pasted on transparent woody tentacles
lash bulgy mandibles
green radiance inside rubber bones
are the eternal soul

Birthday Request

by HemmingPlay
Pillars of Creation: interstellar gas and dust in the Eagle Nebula, some 6,500-7,000 light years from Earth where stars are born

“Pillars of Creation”: Hubble photo of interstellar gas and dust in the Eagle Nebula, some 6,500-7,000 light years from Earth where stars are born

In case anyone’s interested,
I’d like the superpower of “Folding” for my birthday.
It cuts out the middle man
to command space and time
with no bureaucracy.

Like a cosmic calendar with tricky bits.
I’d fold weeks, months, years, centuries together,
jump to any time, past or future.
The first would be hanging with
the first human band to walk out
of Africa 60,000 years ago.
I’d wait in the shade of a date palm,
on the banks of the Nile,
bouncing rocks off the skulls of crocodiles,
keeping an eye out to the south.
I would get a fire going and
cook hot dogs and hamburgers,
and have beer chilling on ice.
History’s first tailgate.

Ocean of Storms

by The Cheesesellers Wife

Oceanus Procellarum, or the Ocean of Storms is a large area on the Moon. It forms part of the Man in the Moon that you see at full Moon. One day the name just kept on rolling around my tongue, until this poem arrived.

Bubbles

by Venkat

As my eyes grew
Blooming blue bubbles
Off this sea of emotion
Touching every world, on this flight

They grew your eyes
Blossoming pink bubbles
Off this desert of judgment
Holding every shine, on this bosom

That Space In Between

by thom amundsen

Where we find hope

Framed by last night and tomorrow

that sight

that helps our tired soul

to want to wish for whimsical

delights.

My Love

by wordypenguin

I’m building this house on the moon
Like a lost astronaut
Looking at you like a star
From a place the world forgot

There’s nothing that I can do
The brightness of the sun
Will give me just enough
To bury my love for you

What Is Time?

by wordypenguin

What is time?
What is this thing that goes on without pause?
If it did not pass
Then where could it have been?
It must have been somewhere
It has passed
So where is it now?
It must be somewhere

Horizon birds

by Ina

Always there is the horizon. And never it is making sense
It is no line, but just an abrupt ending,
a fence between the world we know and all that lies beyond.
Yet I see a line. My mind wants logic in this too grand overkill of space.
