Treasure Island

Cradled in The Cosmos

In the Milky Way,
Our Earth was born.

Surronded by stars,
Accompanied by Mars.

It grew,
We grew,
From kind to cruel.

The planets fought,
The stars exploded,
Our Sun burned hot with rage.

While we huddled helpless in our galaxy.
Watching the violent play.
Now grown,
We wait.
For our own death day.

The Sun,
A blackhole,
The end of time.

There are many, many ways.

    I have an astronomy book called THE VIOLENT UNIVERSE, your poem is a case study of that violence. You present the largest possible perspective of the world that a poem can encompass. It's appropriate that Earth was ACCOMPANIED BY MARS since the next lines concern cruelty and interplanetary war. You leave it to the reader to draw the conclusion, namely, extinction. This fulfills one of the goals of science fiction - to explore the fate of humanity as a whole, and not just individual fates. But what an unthinkable future! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
