Cosmic Lens

There’s a smiley face in space
that’s beaming from above
at our mindless human race
on Earth we say we love.

Put Away Childish Things

Put away childish things
yet keep the childlike wonder.
Though dreams be rent asunder
our wishes still have wings.

From Dust To Dust

From dust to dust our lives are thrust,
while flames the candle's brief combust.
We leave the shelter of the bay,
unmindful night will follow day,

Cosmic Jewels

If Keats could have seen through Hubble's eyes
when the sonnet ‘Bright Star' he wrote,
meaning its telescope-imaged skies
with those stellar tableaux afloat,


Once upon a time I dreamed
I dreamed there was a once upon a time
I dreamed with the mind that dreams
I dreamed in the darkness of dreams

Galactic Needle

Adrift in space where dreamers tread
a Needle's sewing cosmic thread
through cloths of heavens vastly spread
of gold and silver light o'erhead,

Before The Big Bang

What sparked the Big Bang?
Should we give a dang
how the experts debate
as to what might predate

Sculptor In Space

Could there be a sculptor in outer space
deserving of standing ovations,
or grand ethereal artist's embrace
that's fashioning cosmic sensations

Like A Diamond In The Sky

Twinkle the stars in night's display—
Sun's shining rays light up the day...
and yet, if futures vast we may
divine, white dwarf with diamond core

Milk Spill

Under inexorable gravity's pull,
galaxies often move toward one another.
Closer and closer they come to each other,
till astronomic smashups happen in full.
