Comet in My Time--By Marlene Million--United States

Comet in My Time

I am spellbound, gazing
from an open field.
The universe issues
zealous sovereignty
streaming its sentry
through the night, a fiery light,
sky-rocking around the sun.

Gliding across interplanetary
space, an astro-divination
signals a luminescent cloud.
It brightens the world,
feeds ethereal fire to the core.

The magnetic pull elevates,
navigates a journey in solar
sparkle.  This immense serendipity
amazes the mind, startles the senses.

Its tail of wispy ion smoke
cascades a fine vapor
upon the night sky, dotted
with celestial destiny.

  1. Dear Marlene,
    What a unique creation! I've not read many poems devoted to comets, so this one is special, indeed.
    Thank you.
