‘Cosmorama’ by Kemar Cummings The Society December 12, 2013 Beauty, Poetry 1 Comment Beyond the skies is universal eternity. Nebulous ghosts of dust float around In the black hole of space. A night profound As death itself, as life in its old infancy, Contains a trillion grains of stars inside a galaxy Where suns (beyond the reach of sight or sound) Flare as comets streak fire in their earthbound Career. Their lightnings flash out of cold infinity. Bound by deep azure Atlantic waves, The tropical beach, Everest’s cloud-snowed peak And the green plains of grass that richly grow, This world where the play of silver streams laves Cliffs is one with the cosmic dark mystique That binds the universe in its lunar glow. Kemar Cummings is a poet living in Australia.

It is bizarre, but part of our universe, the dust and gases rising, climbing thin and thick, its tall three-light-year pillar being worn for worse by radiation of each nearby stellar force. It’s like a giant bean stalk planted from Jack’s purse, that grOws and gROWs and GROWS, though no one knows its course, onward, outward, continuing its burgeoning, a deconstructed, discombobulated horse in orange, violet, and brown, touched golden, white and pink, that’s galloping across th’ eternal plains of space.
