The photo is called “The Cat’s Eye Nubula” by the Hubble Org. I was listening to Sara Potenza’s bubbly composition, Happy Zappy, when I first saw this dazzling picture. Immediately a vision appeared of me as a child playing within this beautiful formation. Here is what I wrote as I watched the vision and listen to the music.
Click on the MP3 file of Happy Zappy and listen to it as you read the poem to understand the sheer joy I felt.
Here I go! Swimming
through the stars
turning slow, then fast
and faster flips across
the Milky Way! Spinning
in, out, over, around
The Cat’s Eye, a star flower
Get behind me, form a line.
Join the fun! Skim down moonbeams,
slide into the wormhole consciousness.
Leave behind all that was,
embracing all that will be!
Life is a delight, have fun.
Drink in the glory of creation
Love, laugh, and share your joy!!
