Space garden

Fertile night sky
rich black topsoil
seeded with stars.

    • Thank you kindly, my friend! Glad you enjoyed it 🙂 I’ve often wondered what it would be like if the world was turned upside down, the sky at my feet and earth floating above my head. However, this concept is closer to reality than we think. No one can explain how our brains flip images that we would otherwise see upside down. This was the mystery that prompted my poem. I hope you are having a wonderful tomorrow today!
      Cheers,

  4. Bravo for a great words painting this picture.

  5. I enjoy poetry that turns the standard view of things on its head, not to be crude or contrarian, but just to examine another perspective. And so I enjoyed the notion of the night sky being a seeded field of topsoil.

    • Thank you kindly, Roger! I’m always trying to find a fresh perspective, a new way of tilling the soil and sowing ideas, as it were. What would happen if the world was turned upside down, the sky at my feet and earth above my head? This concept is closer to reality than we think. No one can explain how our brains flip images that we would otherwise see upside down. It was this mystery that prompted my poem. I hope you’re having a relaxing weekend, my friend!

  6. What a lovely poem! I found it interesting to travel to the southern hemisphere where the entire starry sky was different. All that we northerners are so used to seeing was just not there! Even here in southern Mexico we cannot see the big dipper, which is so prominent in Alaska.
    Thanks for stopping by and liking my blog.

    • You are most welcome, Marilyn, it’s my pleasure! And thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a kind, thought-provoking comment! I’ve never traveled to the southern hemisphere, so this is very insightful to learn. I’ve always been fascinated by the night sky or the timeless poetic abyss, as I call it. Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!
      Cheers,
      Tyler
