Allan Scott

Andromeda awaits

as close as Andromeda awaiting
the universal flower blooms its petals
hugging the great sea in its blossom
flooding the dwellings with innovation
making mechanical smiles from the galactic machines
the clockwork rusts with stars cultivated as nectar
causing certainty in times continuum

A nostalgic nebula becomes an image burnt to frame
Space flooded and flowered by our mother
Sound, dear sound fluctuating a heart beat

a combination of two liquid giants
Harmony, Flowering with harmony
reflections of darkened space but years of beauty
Andromeda rests on crimson overlays light years away

Poet's Notes about The Poem

based on events occurring recently that re-shaped my perspective on my own life. A cryptic re-telling of an event that involved a 'galaxy'that was 'next' to my 'galaxy' like Andromeda neighbors the milky way, first it was simply nothing. But then sound caused an intangible feeling. Then the visuals.. (hence the liquid giants, being eyes) .. The part about sound was from how the initial experience ignited and the nostalgic nebula is referring to a set of pearl earrings

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
