When you look at the stars

April 15, 2018



When you look at the stars
What do you see?

I see plates of algae.

And like sun splashes,
Bright green flashes.
The flagella dance
To the calcium beat,
While the optics flare
In the laser’s refracted rays.


Away from the lens,
My eyes still filled
With algae as stars
As I step into the night;
I look up into the midst
Of a seafoam twilight.


My tiny green stars
Still glowing bright.
