123 (who?)
Solid starlight beam,
Precarious illusion,
Photon Congo line.

Each born of fusion,
To squirm through desolate space,
Die in my retina.
I have a specific meaning in mind for this, but rather than explain, I'd like to read your interpretations. What do you guys think?


This poem was inspired by a line in Starspun, by *BittersweetObsession. Give it a read; it was awarded a DD recently!

Frozen Starlight

It suggests how the sights we take in are very fleeting things - snapshots that we have only a second to enjoy.

It's hard to find a specific meaning. At least, that's what I think.
It makes stars sound so far away, so distant and unimportant. But strong.
Surviving through an empty universe, only to die when sighted.
It's great, it makes me think of how, when we see the light of a star that's likely billions of light years away, it could already be dead. We're seeing what's left of it, that little remnant of light left in space.

Very nice, I have thought about this before. Such a complex process followed by a long journey only to come to an end in such a seemingly simple way. You have described it in such an elegant way.

Seems to me like you're trying to slow down time to it's absolute slowest without stopping it - watching the most common birth and death, one that happens a million times in a blink.
