Astronomical Observation

Astronomical Observation

A Poem by Li Li

Am I writing poetry again? Really?


Looking towards the sky,

I began to decipher the constellations

longing to discover the origin of his existence.

I began by opening Pyxis taking Circinus within my hands.

Vela began leading me down the liquid diamonds of the Eradinus.


I pretended I was Andromeda longing for Perseus.

Together we would illuminate the sky beyond the radiance of the sun.

Helios would bow in our honor.


Our love would kindle the flames of Olympus.

The Greek Gods would appear from the heavens.

Atlantis would arise once more

as the hands of the horologium determined a new era of evolution.


Mythology now became our reality.


The infinite density of the universe

now consisted of only him and I.

The cosmological distances between our galaxies came together,

forming our own relativity of astronomical observation.

In the cosmos tis morning I see. Heads in the sky sort ta' speak. Nicely done as usual. Clear and even flow, nice.
