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.
