Somewhere it's Spring

a lark’s song
and she wakes – it’s just a dream
of Earth

through leafmould sapphires burn: Seventh Life

early dawn –

windshields clear of
ammonia frost

next up to bat… Homo habilis

this place of red,

turning… the first of
many worms

when sulphur flows

down living rock,
remember me

February 1

where have you gone?
there are no buds;
the sky is cold

Thy saints ascend
into the grace manifold
lighting up errant galaxies
that flicker on forgotten trees.

On this day in 2003, while returning to Earth from an orbital mission, the U.S. space shuttle Columbia broke up catastrophically at an altitude of about 60 km (40 miles) over Texas, killing all seven crew members.

Out of the trees, into elsewhere

portals swing wide…
these primates have learned
to jump

Tau Ceti bound, we skip the null zones

through our filters
a sweet burning…
Cherokee Rille

the new sweat lodge Trickster knows it well

A vital sunshade, just one example of advances in technology between the Mariner 10 and MESSENGER missions, allows the new probe to keep its sophisticated instruments at about room temperature while the sun-facing side reaches a scorching 600 degrees Fahrenheit (315 degrees Celsius).

dusty blue skies, carnation-pink
death rays

how sweet her breath! but she does not breathe

Against the blackest sky

solsticetide –
at the top hangs down
one bright red ball

Bethlehem sleeps: a daisy cutter

Mars will be unusually bright this Christmas Eve and the moon will be shining full
How the Daisy-Cutter works
