“Every one of us is, in the cosmic perspective, precious . . . In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another.”
–Carl Sagan


I ate the cosmos and 

gulped down the stars

and the galaxies 

taken with a handful of 

constellations and

and swallowed a couple of Comets

to warm the dark corners of my soul

sprinkling stardust on my pores,

the lights of the Aurora Borealis

is now a hidden rainbow

dwelling just under my skin

and stars lined with my freckles

twinkle and shimmer in the dark

the dancing and rotating planets

are donning my eyeballs

the celestial gaze which 

can lock up your stare

for eons and 

can leave you asking for more

I ate the cosmos

with the moonlight 

running through my 


and the ambrosial beauty

defined beyond the

dimension of 

space and time

A celestial love

hiding the

mysteries of the universe

unsolved so far.

  1. Love the use of hyperbole and the sentiments you drawn upon. Hiding the aurora borealis beneath your skin and consuming the stars to give light inside is brilliant. Such passion hidden deep in the cosmos of these lines. Beautiful, Megha.

      1. You are always welcome. I am also intrigued and inspired by the cosmos. I can spend hours lost in its beauty.
