Each Star is the Promise of a Bloom

Poem

Gregory D. Welch
Jun 8, 2020 · 1 min read

Each star is the promise of a bloom
a bright cacophony against a star-drunk
roll of endless night sky
where all the galaxies are a seed
planted in the depths of her endless dark soil

Star-bloom of prismed light
parting petals of every galactic potential
each galaxy a garden in its own right
planted deep in the bottomless black night sky
where each star-stained promise has roots tangled together

Every photon promises a petal parting light
night roses with solar flares for thorns
rooted deep in the cosmic etern
endless night with equally endless mysteries
she is a radiance of rebellion in her endless garden of paradox

Each star a rose of blossoming light
reaching across the endless stretch of endless night
with all the depths of her star-stained night soil
mysteries for compost, compounding
each star the promise of a bloom
