Celestial Bodies

Freya Pickard featured my haiku, Jovian blemish, on June 16th, for the theme Celestial Bodies at Pure Haiku. It appears here, along with another four haiku written at the same time.

Celestial Bodies

Jovian blemish
mysterious formation
JunoCam target


floating, arms open
at one with vast emptiness
drifting, accepting


signals from afar
interstellar messages
timeless history


probing the heavens
seeking distant signs of life
discoveries wait


diamonds in the night
dust held in a million motes
wealth in the heavens
