How should but a low star subdue the soul?

Cosmoses melodies to me they lull.

Consuming, Captivating! Conquering,

Unfinished pictures, bewildered mortals

Saturn’s rings 'round their head— lay on Death’s bed.

Devotion; a shrine— rest her crescent moon,

An addiction be Martian red, passion 

Bursts in longing. Fingers partial brushstrokes

A painter in this world as God invoked. 

The author's comments:

I have always been susceptible to the hymn of the galaxy, consistently falling under its spell. For as long as I can recall, my heart had yearned to meet the celestial bodies which have captivated my soul and being. Song of the Stars is a written representation of the internal desire I experience; the call I receive daily whenever my eyes are met by the heavenly figures resting in the sky which so clearly embody deities and the beating of one's heart at the same time.
