Oh, Thank Heavens


by Catherine Giordano

A lot of my very best news print poems are about celestial events. Astronomy is so full of mystery and wonder that it always makes for a great poem.

I think "Flare" is a great poetry, but the image of a lonely orphan planet really gets to me, too.

"Celestial Event" is about the transit of Venus, a very rare occurrence, but it happened last year.

"See the Light" is about the Norther Lights, the aurora borealis

In "A Distant Planet Turns to Dust" you can rad about a plenet disintegrating very, very slowly--another great image. 

Click on the title to read the poems.
