Light leaks
from cuts carved
across the static sky

By satellite:
Signal-ships sent
in search of new worlds

(and old lovers)

Long-lost to
rocket-fuel run-off

As Heavens burn
in halo-burst.

Just a short ditty about space and love and loss, and the dangers of ambition.
There's probably a little slice of Solaris in this piece but that wasn't at all intentional.

I look out of my window far too much, it would seem.

You've managed to create a spacey, enigmatic air, with the bare minimum of words

I prefer Sunshine, but then, I can't remember if I've actually seen Solaris.

I'd say that it might do to be outside your window instead of viewing the world from it, but sometimes it's as close as you can get --- and, sometimes, you see much more from there.

It's a visual master-stroke; well, they both are. I was mesmerised by it even though the story itself is fairly formulaic.

Formulaic like your face.


If we're talking about horses, that is.
