I love this stanza! Would humans be able to perceive the art of a parallel Keats however such being could achieve commensurate lyrical feats? Would we all not love to read a cosmically parallel Keats.

Perchance in the heavens' vast expanse unfathomed in immensity, a pale blue dot round lone star may dance where mortals have more sense than we...... impressive inscription on heaven. A beautiful poem. Thanks and congratulations for being chosen this poem as the member poem of the poem of the day.

Keats is one of my favorites too and his poem " Bright Star..." seemed to lend itself to be included here. I'm glad you like the notes which I feel should be included whether or not anyone reads them. At any rate, I always research the subjects in my poems and often learn a lot in the process.

CONGRATULATIONS Mrs. Harley, being chosen by the PH Editors Yesterday it was me and Today are you. Coincidence? Of course not, God's will, sure. Your poem is truly a wonderous part to stroll along and still reading your very impressive words about human conditions and astronomy. Such a very interesting read about the space, stars, the world and earth too.

By nature bountifully bestowed, albeit diamonds in the rough, we fail to seek an enlightened road but choose instead to strut our stuff.....the paths of the great space are really mysterious; puzzling the paths are all through dazzling flaring lights of stars; decorating ornaments and precious dust of the space; beautiful poem penned on the stardust; congrats for being selected this poem again as POD

A stunning work, you have masterfully crafted a poem of universal wisdom, we are but grains in this vast and fathomless shores of eternity. We are know special then a molecule that thinks itself king, but we are special in realizing how limited we are. SO glad this was chosen as POTD
