Milky Way, Galaxy of Light

Updated on December 30, 2015
What mysteries shall we pursue and to solve...
What mysteries shall we pursue and to solve...
One small grain of sand on the beach of the universe...
One small grain of sand on the beach of the universe...
The skies are unlimited...to infinity...
The skies are unlimited...to infinity...
The firmament awaits...
The firmament awaits...
Each dawning is one of greater knowledge...
Each dawning is one of greater knowledge...
As we spin and twirl in our solar system, as small as a seed, in the universal magnitude...
As we spin and twirl in our solar system, as small as a seed, in the universal magnitude...



Milky Way...from the Greek...the "Milky Circle"...you spin about on high,

Our home here on earth...of this whirling dervish, so glorious, in the sky.

Disc-shaped structure, of galactic stars, to be a hundred light years wide,

As we, on our blue planet, in orbit of the sun, do manage quite well to hide.


At your center, your core...a darkness found there...a black hole, is its name.

As a trillion stars circle and swirl...in incessant revolutions, none the same.

Grandest subject of the astronomers...thought to be as one, and all alone,

Until proven by Hubble...no single galaxy, among the many, came to be known.


While planets and their moons, encircle their stars, each solar system to prevail,

All fill the galaxies in a brilliance, to glow, and shine, as we lift the Milky Way's veil.

Galaxies to infinity...majestic universes, their numbers beyond all comprehension,

As human kind takes a first step on its moon...their very conquest, is our intention.


The human mind...as a resource, an individual universe... unlimited in its own way,

We shall rely on our pluck with each try...none to deny, as we fly to the stars and play.

As a tiny grain of sand, on a tropical beach, so grand, we're all right here to stay,

But a nice vacation, in a visit to the stars, to increase our knowledge, along the way.

The Milky Way awaits us each and has wonders far greater than we may imagine...

      You always manage to remind us of the vastness of our universe and our own possibilities. Your new photos are stunning, whonu. I love the shot of all the cotton ball clouds in the sky.

      Another beauty, my poetic friend!

      Indeed...reading this reminds me how tiny I feel as I view the wonders above. Stretching on forever, it seems, lighting up our lives along the way.
