Camera Eyes Two Mice

This Pleiades poem was written in response to the Send a Message prompt from Totally Optional Prompts.

News: Hubble Telescope photographs two spiral galaxies, members of the Coma Cluster, known as The Mice.


conjunct galaxies whirl
cosmic tails twirl and reach
curl away from Coma
collide once again, then
cluster at the first light ~
collection on the move
crafts a skybound message

Yeah, I like it! All those C's send me into a coma, only joking.
Loved the fractal too!

...whirl...twirl...curl...and then the collision, eventually into a message. This would be a good "writing" poem for Writer's Digest.

The use of the C's is fun and I love all the rhyme in here, too! whirl, twirl, curl, again, then. And the alliteration of all the L's. there is just so much in here! Love it!
