Poem: The Silence of Saturn’s Rings

Titan is patient
forever turning,
helplessly bound in the well worn groove.

I imagine that space is not a vacuum,
that the planets have worn their paths –
furrowed into the map of the galaxy –
forever turning deeper and deeper into permanence.

Alas, gravity is a form of entropy,
Titan spirals imperceptibly
into Saturn’s rings,
to meld with rocks and meteors,
to hang,
waiting for gravity’s last call.

  1. I like this a lot. You have economically suggested the immensity and mystery of space; some of the themes I’m also interested in. I think I’ve one poem, at least, on my blog about astro-things!
