Stars Dance – A Kyrielle Sonnet

Stars Dance – a Kyrielle Sonnet

Stars dance to music of the spheres
within dark energy’s ballroom
swaying through dark matter that’s there.
Gravity’s pull makes them dance.

In a vacuum their music sounds
mathematical, oh what gloom–
scientific, describes the boom.
Gravity’s pull makes them dance.

Colliding stars send shock waves out
shaking the the long cosmic ballroom,
the microwave background plays out–
Gravity’s pull makes them dance.

Stars dance to music of the spheres–
Gravity’s pull makes them dance.

This was really hard. Not sure I’ll try this one again unless I need a poetic torture device 😉  I like Shakespearean sonnets (as you know). I tried this for Bastet’s Kyrielle Sonnet prompt on Mindlovesmisery’s Menagrie.

  1. Let me get back to you as soon as I look up, read, and understand a Kyrielle sonnet. 🙂 Then maybe I’ll try too. (You know I will) 😉
