Supernova Maria

Back to Contents

Long into the cold void has she glown her gentle light,

nurturing there the life that challenges eternal night.

Comes the time when her cool flame dies and a hotter passion burns,

amplifying the heat she emanates as in toward own center she turns.

That which envelopes her she sheds with deliberate grace,

casting it aside to reveal her hot naked core to surrounding space.

Further inward she turns herself and implodes in irresistible compulsion,

losing herself in a radiant explosion of incandescent convulsion.

All that's left is the slowing pulse of a rapidly beating heart

and the faint possibility that her act will cause another like her to start.
