Hourglass of stars,
minted in a nebula
not too far from Mars,
bloodied rust of cosmic dust
fills the sky – all-seeing eye.

My response to dVerse Poets Pub Poetics: Lookin’ Up!

Lillian is our host for this Tuesday’s Poetics and she says she would like us all to look up – through the Hubble Space Telescope! She has selected four photos taken by Hubble and asks us to choose one for inspiration. I decided  to write a micro poem for a macro subject.
