1 [Loosely based on a passage from 

"The Book of General Ignorance".]

What a day for a nothing event.

In 2003 the Hubble Telescope

was set to ultra deep field mode.

In 1 million seconds, or about 11 days

the photo they made showed tens of thousands

of hitherto unknown galaxies,

each consisting of hundreds of millions

of stars stretching out to a dim lit edge.

2.  [in the Chinese Manner]

My friend and I part -

his straw hat soon

gets lost in the wheat.

3. [Future Astrolabe - from Writings In Science

my sci-fi novel]]

A star is like a match

but cool to the touch

let it land and rest

on your outstretched finger

store it in your pocket

for the light you need

on a moonless night

to help you find your way.

4. [Yarn]

"Tigers, jaguars, leopards, and lions

one in every tree.

That forest was thick I tell you kids,

that forest was thick as thieves.

We'd tiptoe in slippers from bole to bole

as they'd snore up in the leaves.

That forest would buzz with "Z's" my friends,

that forest would buzz with "Z's.

We had a mate a gentle soul

whose toe was suddenly stubbed.

He yelled. They awoke. A paw came down

and yanked his body up!

I lost them all - all but me

who escaped without a scratch.

Their chomping on bones, and smacking of lips

was enough to cover my tracks!


Vision is out there, you just have to look.

I can fly, but I have to be dreaming.

Poemette - short poem.
