Black Hole - Poem by Pete Crowther

A black hole is hungry,
it swallows light,
even the odd galaxy
like a hoover,
but get this—
they say it blows out
(at the other end, I guess)
new universes
like frogspawn
or bubbles, just think:
a froth of universes,
each as big as ours
but all different.
Man, it’s mind blowing!

    You take new angles, explain the most complicated phenomena with vivid images and that's wonderful! Warmly, Julia (Report) Reply

    An artistic combination of images, from the mundane (hoover) to the sublime (froth) . Very vivid. Light pervades your poems Peter, even when it is threatened by the big voracious mouth of a black hole. (Report) Reply
