Through Hubble’s Eyes

Peer into Orion's Nebula,
billows of mist expanding,
    bow shocks ballooning
    near an infant star. . .

Observe solar currents cresting
in crescent-shaped waves,
    colliding in space as if
    bright ships sliced sea. . .

    On any given day, watch
    suns' winds at play
       in bucketing brooks
       of auroral blaze.
