The Eagle

Postby nightlock » Fri Sep 14, 2012 5:52 am

Pillars of Creation
A tiny spark, a flash of light
Quickly flies, sudden insight
You inspire

Pillars of Creation
Shining eyes, burning with desire,
Frenzied mind, a mental gyre
The words come

Pillars of Creation
Absorb the worlds, infused with wisdom
Dancing words, to craft a poem
We play

Pillars of Creation
Pen to paper, brook no delay
Ruled by words, held in sway
I write

@idigina
Though I enjoy this format (the circlet) this will likely be the last for some time.
I want to try different forms.

Has this got anything to do with Ken Folletts book?

Doubtful, who is Ken Follett?

He wrote Pillars of Creation I think it was called. Or, failing that, Pillars of the earth.

ah, I was referring to the rather well known gas-cloud formation in the Eagle Nebula:
