Dark Sphere

This poem explores the concept of the awe-inspiring black hole through abstract language and imagery. It conveys the expansive nature of the universe through ‘a vantage point’ as we lookout for a ‘glimpse of the unknown’.

Nether worlds of twisted space-time

of the universe

on a vantage point – 

the night sky, a trillion stars

on the horizon – 

a strange dark sphere casts its shadow – 

hot gas burns bright and brighter 

at a galaxy’s centre – 

and sometimes the universe gifts 

a glimpse of the unknown 

of life untold

of awaiting oblivion – 

and the dense dark sphere spirals closer
