Pictures from Hubble

I put my hand
On the picture
Glorious infinite
Galaxies of stars
Beginning high above
Their light captured by
Hubble
Laid out on paper
My hand is
Lost in a sea of blazing
Stars
I see them in their
Beauty
Barely aware of
Of their wrath
Flame hotter than
Dante
Ever could have dreamed
I am lost
In a weightless
Black sea studded
With diamonds
That burn for eons
The synapses
In my mind
Strain to comprehend
This enormity
