From NASA with love #80: recalling the one I love

PIA09263_orig (2) (1)

the names
of the sisters
escape me

but
seven

they are
seven

the weave
of their hair
laid
across my face

hides them
from my view

clouds
my thinking

except …

but …

I
should not
be here

so late
alone at night

so far from
that home of mine

why am I here

the names
of the sisters
escape me

but I like
yes
I think that I really like
Merope
the best

  1. There is a culture in South America that believes it is descended from the Pleiades. They use them in their folk art and even knew there were seven stars long before a telescope was developed that let men see it. Fascinating.

  2. I very much like the situation of the onlooker, alone and faraway; perhaps you can find deep space here on earth, and then the comfort in a single star, like a single memory. A very relatable piece, Frank.
