#03 Celestial Thoughts




Because of the absence of Jeremy for medical reasons, I have decided to do it myself. Not for too long I hope Jem recovers and takes over again very soon. This challenge is dealing with outer space and I've called it "Celestial Thoughts"

Celestial Thoughts

The Earth is a living and breathing creature
a gigantic turtle which swims forever
on the black oceans of Eternity.
The plates that fuse the carpace are fused
along the lines of power.
When the Earth moves these junctions
enable it to flex its body and limbs.
These are the centres of unimaginable force
some for good, but others for evil.

Wilber Smith - Desert God

Celestial Thoughts

Out of an endless void my love has grown
Starting from a cosmic speck, a minute grain
And finitely creating this heavenly domain
Where there was nothing a seed was sown.
Not of wood, nor steel, nor brick or stone
No roof of tin or tile to shelter from harm
It was created by love, to protect and warm.
My pulsing heart, inside flesh and bone
A celestial being that has won my soul
Knowing that time or distance can never part
Two separate beings have made a whole.
From timeless space you have won my heart
From now my life and love is your control
From it we will prove True Love is an art.

Fools Dreams

The mad fool dreams once more.
Soaring heavenwards to the light
Wings spread in his desperate flight
He feels the joy the love of soar.
Airborne high over the lands below
Past clouded towers and minaret
Now only stars, heavens gems beset.
Realising he's only seeing the afterglow.
The mad fool dreams once more
Never a slave to what's normal form
Again steps through that magic door.
Flying on and on, finally into the dawn
Past all the sane that went before
Reaching Heaven without being shown.

Media Truths

A Tap Dance on the written word,
Readings woven creating a snare
Ignoring the desire to lay truth bare
Instead lie about events occurred.
Paragons of truth now speak absurd
Catching the unwary in vacant stare
And non essentials until they swear
That black is white and was preferred.
Games are crueller than those of youth
Now the innocent has become the prey.
And the innocents have to dig for proof
Phones are tapped in the name of what
Whilst justice does the innocent betray
But now the media are getting their lot.

Neptune

Neptune! I see you deep in the sea of space
So isolated from the other and lesser Gods.
Does that mean with them you are at odds
Where does that leave you with the human race?
Why is it only in a storm that we see your face
Galileo first saw thee and thought thee a star
Thy moon Triton's the coldest in the system by far
And you have many others you still embrace
Thou art the Eighth, for a brief while not the last
Pluto thy neighbour's packed his bags and gone.
Never have I seen a planet so blue go past
Our seas and oceans are jealous of thee every one.
You inspire us and our dreams thy spirit is cast
And because of this all poets to you are drawn.

Shooting Stars

Today I saw matter crashing to the earth
Bright flashes streaking across the sky
Watching as they entered the atmosphere to die
They were part of the cosmos at its birth.
Part of the life and death of the universe.
They began when worlds were first formed
Part of a huge ball of energy that stormed
Spinning in space, worlds began to coerce.
They are like throw offs from a potter's wheel
Not wanted by the worlds that were created
Each time one of them burns out worlds feel.
Going closer to the creation that was fated
Are we now much closer to what is real?
Like them we'll burn out one day as stated.

Divena Collins

Floating Cloud

Swathed within a silken and satin gown
'neath a fluffy cloud of a chiffon lace
Floating high unto a starlight embrace
On high she soars upon clouds of dawn .
Towards a misty heavenly path shown
So softly the touch of an angels grace
A shooting star shall not ever deface
The grace of a princesses faded gown.
All that may glitter shall not be gold
Nor the purity of features to renown
Warmth shall appear from bitter cold
Within the blossom of a garland crown
That entered her heart within the fold
Once she was a princess looking down.

Galaxy Unknown

No human shall survive on the mighty sun
Yet here on earth we cannot live without it
No life within vast galaxies shall ever visit
The heat is much too intense for everyone
There is no escape nor a hiding place to run
Yet without warmth Earth shall not survive
No wild life, plants, or humans remain alive
A chance of survival being practically none
We shall not experience light but only dark
No more seasons within the quarterly zone
Nor morning dawn with the song of the lark
Earth shall be of nothing but a planet alone
Until new planets from space shall embark
Within the vast galaxy of a future unknown.



-----

Pathways Unknown

Time shall unlock a pathway to the planets
A celestial galaxy of many light years away
Far from the shadow's of the earths display
Of thundrous seas that may bear no outlets
Thus pathes the way that shall be of regrets
May this Earth crumble and be lost forever
Shall we escape within space now or never
Or may the power of space withhold secrets
That shall cause a selestial war upon friction
Time itself shall forever be against the winds
Celestial planets are not within jurisdiction
So many many light years of celestial minds
How should we cope then with this infliction
When humanity within this earth ever binds.


Pathways Unknown

Planet Venus

Within outer space there shall be no time
A future above shall be of eternal oblivion
That shall ever be cast as a future dominion
Where darkness and light may reign sublime
And silence within shall space storms resign
A galaxy of pathways to a beautiful heaven
That can only be described as a lovers haven
Lost within eternity of a blissful love divine
There they may reign both together endless
Where the spirits of lovers so destined to be
For within the void of space is ever timeless
No tidal wave shall ever rule the silent sea
A galaxy of stars shall never remain lifeless
This love shall ever revolve for an eternity.
