Interstellar Love

A galaxy can fall for infinite black hole

By Salomé SaffiriPublished 5 months ago Updated 5 months ago 1 min read

Abyss, I fall for you

Before the light of day

Can penetrate the

Darkness of your

Ego.

Free, and unbound by

Gravity, astray,

Highlighting skies, encompassed by your

Image, I

Jump. Just to bestow a

Kiss. To

Land where none before

Me ever landed.

No more of emptiness, or ego

Or abyss - I

Plummet.

Quasar will form where protostar has

Rendered.

Some say through space,

Through gravity, through voidness; Through

Universe itself, so far away, still

Visible beyond the Milky

Way, like jewels in the crowns of tsars

X-rays and gamma rays shine in coronas of Quasars.

Young disks like halos. Beyond the infamous

Zone of avoidance.

Footnotes:

Protostar - is a very young star that is still gathering mass from its parent molecular cloud. This is the earliest phase in the process of stellar evolution

Quasars (are a) subclass of active galactic nuclei, extremely luminous galactic cores where gas and dust falling into a supermassive black hole emit electromagnetic radiation across the entire electromagnetic spectrum.

Quasars emit most of their radiation in the optical/ultraviolet (UV) band, through their accretion disk, and a small fraction in the X-rays, produced by a cloud of hot electrons called a “corona”

Zone of Avoidance - An irregular zone near the plane of the Milky Way where the absorption due to interstellar dust is so great that no external galaxies can be seen through it

Voidness is a word. I checked :P

Salomé Saffiri

Writing - is my purpose. I feel elated when my thoughts assume shapes, and turn into Timberwolves, running through the snowbound planes of fresh paper, leaving the black ink of their paw prints behind.

    Beautiful images!

  • Whoaaaa, this was so magical and mesmerising! Absolutely out of this world (pun intended, lol). Also, in the W line, did you mean stars instead of tsars? I'm so happy you provided glossary again! I loved your Abecedarian!

  • Delighted you explore science and poetry! Nice job on this poem
