Supernova

Image Courtesy: en.wikipedia.org

Energy builds, pressure escalates

Prodigious power sufficient to devastate

Cracks appear on this mighty boulder

Impulse overrides, as it begins to smolder

A flash so bright, enough to blind

Time for this you will never find

A shockwave so vicious, as the star erupts

Terrifying yet radiant this luminous flux

As fast as it began, its life takes a grim ending

Or maybe this death just started a new beginning.

A new star is born from the ashes of the deceased.

Cycles collide, Colors unleashed.

    Very well done-loving the use of scientific terminology to enhance the emotions that run through this piece. Reminds me of Jane’s Addiction ‘Irrestible force/immovable object.’ Loved your Trauma piece as well!

    I would not have been brave enough to share my poetry with the world – even anonymously – at your age. I don’t think blogging even existed when I was your age! I was surprised to learn you are just 16. And you already gave yourself the best writing advice – to write for yourself and not for hits. Keep doing what you’re doing. xx

    I don’t believe in coincidence, but in destiny.
    The last sentence of this beautiful cosmic poem happens to match the last sentence of my own poem titled ‘reborn’ – ‘passion explodes, colours reborn’. It seems that my nebula poem has found its supernova soul mate! HELLO!

    I think there’s a few different connotations in this – it’s very good with what can be picked out

  10. I have a bit of an obsession with cosmic, large-scale events like explosions like these. I love the images you used in your writing.
