Hi everyone, so this post is a small sample of my own poetry again. I hope the words I’ve used helps you visualize the vastness of our known universe…
This poem was written not long after watching a science documentary of space and a particularly difficult assignment in university. In my youth I was prone to reading science fiction and I believe I made my way through a substantial number of books by Sir Arthur C. Clarke. It was books such as these that made science and space fascinating to me!
The Great Cosmos
The crescent moon sails the starry sky Waning with the flooding tide Waxing as the ebb tide flows From the mangrove shrubs to the sandy shore.
Rivers of dark, rivers of light Patch the cosmic landscape of sky Nebulae of color, constellations of stars Fill the spaces of unknown scars.
Galaxies of light Spread far and wide Spiraling the great arms of time
The balance of time and space Stretch delicately On cosmic threads Infinitely.
By Surani Ramachandra
Okay, it feels a bit less scary publishing my own writing now. I hope you enjoyed this one. I will try and kick-start my poetry again and maybe see what I can do about the other writing projects I’ve left behind.
Stay safe and keep reading
