Cycles


The Star Eater moves slowly
Through the cosmic hiss and dust,
Constantly methodically searching,
With a hunger bordering on lust
For the signs of the dying Star
To take energy from the waste
As it spreads the Universe around.
A complete feeding without haste
Recycling the energy
Flowing through space
In a constant renewal
Of this endless place.
The dramatic death
Of each star
Insignificant
From afar;
Only the Whales swimming
Their huge galactic rides
May sense Star's demise
Reflected in energy tides.
Maybe
Though not for long
Note each passing
With a burst of song.
The Star Eater moves slowly,
Homes in to feed and is gone,
As another star somewhere is born
And the endless cycle moves on and on
