GIRL AND THE SUPERNOVA
the height of summer's longest day
skipping astray through veils of flowers
a girl was catching the seeds she desired:
See I reach very high, almost to the sky!
dragonfly swirled by, joined by a bee,
like binary stars on a billowing field.
Hello little ones, she giggled and waved:
Stay here a while and play with me!
what can become the fladders of a fly,
if not a change of the winds blowing high?
Oh no, she cried as her friends whirled away
- they didn't even stopped to say bye!
as she stood there gazing the blue,
trying to spot where the seeds were going,
for a split of a second an amazing sight
tumbled down from the cosmic night...
distant giant star, flamingly bright,
exploding in cascades of fusion light
from thousands of lightyears away...
They must be starseeds, she said.
