Quotes about galaxy, page 2

Carl Sagan

We live on a hunk of rock and metal that circles a humdrum star that is one of 400 billion other stars that make up the Milky Way Galaxy which is one of billions of other galaxies which make up a universe which may be one of a very large number, perhaps an infinite number, of other universes. That is a perspective on human life and our culture that is well worth pondering.

Keep up the good work, if only for a while, if only for the twinkling of a tiny galaxy.

It is a lovely thing to see
In this room
My sun spreading its light
In your dark galaxy

A Lovely Thing To See

It is a lovely thing to see
In this room
My sperm spreading like a cloud
In your dark galaxy

The Galaxy Is Greater

The Galaxy is greater
Than any single star
And all the other little Dust
Is Darkness from Afar.

Is it not careless to become too local when there are four hundred billion stars in our galaxy alone.

Galaxy Song

When youre feeling inside out and insecure,
and life keeps getting you down.
When all lifes daily worrieshurry through your head.
You dont want to even get up.
You just lie around in bed.
When you feel you just cant take it anymore
And you wonder what on earth it is all foryour love lifes like a war zone
Your tvs on the blinkits enough to drive a drinking man to stop and take a
Think
just remember that you standing on a planet thats evolving,revolving at 900
Miles an hour.its orbiting at 19 miles a second, so its reckoned,
A sun that is the source of all our power.
The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day.
In an outer spiral orb, at 40,000 miles an hour,
Of the galaxy we call the milky way
Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.
Its a 100,000 light years side to side
It bulges in the middle 16,000 light years thick,
But out by us its just 3,000 light years wide.

Airs That Suppress

Boundless airs suppress my conduct to be,
The atmosphere leaps out to the spine;
Boundaries are amiss, my strength is sudden,
And appearing before me an apparition.
My ghosts supper on the mixtures of this galaxy,
My small ghost opens the window of the lords
Of the galaxy, so homely star systems feed.
The food for dozens of spectators is sight itself,
Fixing the legends of old, the ancient lights.

I don't believe anything. I only know some things to a greater degree of certainty than others. - from When Galaxies Collide

Finding

Mine was the voice of a stranger
In a breath of moon light
That circled your horizons
Entertained by the Galaxy of night;

I was the road least taken
Upon a journey of many days
Colouring your imagination
Thus, directing you, my way;

Moonrise

As day passes spent slowly swoony delirious
I commit myself to restorative divinity sleep.
Like an exploring embryonic deep-sea diver
merging within welcoming murky mystic deep.

My soul eightfold I ceremoniously merge
into kaleidoscopic cosmic expanding realities.
An alien world I enlightened astral explore
through saffron star dust distant galaxies.


Through misty moonrise colouring grey
cloud paint streaked monumental morn.
Vision astrological alines prophetic potent
alien messiah is star bright ritually born.

Diverse vegetation stretching straining upwards
aspires immersion layered Siddhartha sky.
Undulating in shadows, unenlightened call sorcery dim,
flexing rhythmic dance, energy pure galactic hymn.

The Galaxies

the galaxies drift
the stars are swimming in the ocean
of space
it is dark but all the planets are feeling confident
there are laws to follow
there will be no collisions
the big bang was so terrible
some stars explode
on the other hand another galaxy is born
somewhere in space
all these
meteors and stars and earths
paradise
in random chaos
we must all know
is still the best poem
ever

you see? the stars over there
they are twinkling

Collision

Space, made of the pulsing endless vastness of the human imagination
Stars glow, comets fly, rocks drift all of this is silent as it happens in each galaxy
Quite soundless work taking it’s time
Everything must be perfect, efficient
When something foreign or new touches this space all of the workers
Must now create harmony and must accommodate the friend or intruder
If this foreign friend feels right like it must belong space will keep it
If it is an intruder planning to destroy comets fly to battle and attack
The white comets must protect its red rocks and absent sun
Then one faithful day space began to pulse faster as a foreign
Friend came into contact
The friend felt warm, soft, new, and inviting
It was another galaxy
It began pulsing as they became closer and closer
We fly away from these pink and red galaxies into the bodies of two people
Then further and further until we see them begin their new journey
A touch
A kiss
In the night
As the stars glow, comets fly, and rocks drift soundlessly and forever

Seedburst

galactic seeds sprout flowers
in telescopes of astronomers

vines of strings of stars
entwine, bursting fibres

in more and more mirror
image of human brain

physicists chase
back to big roar author.


if you know that artist
enfolds kosmos

inside your mind,
congratulations!

you've entered

Hubble Spectrograph Slices Time

park dugout canoe
leave trees standing
knowledge is growing

through Hubble telescope viewing
invisible universe backbone mapping
list astounding revelations exciting

multi-wavelength colorful pictures
newly revealed far-flung galaxies
densely packed dust star clusters

biblical eerie 'pillar of creation'
beautiful 'butterfly' 'bug' nebula
birth of planets around alien stars

probing composition structures
of atmospheres on other worlds
galaxies star clusters studied objects

Ode To Heath Ledger

Ode to Heath.....
a galaxy away from filming at Stadium High school
your first big break brought you to Tacoma
a long ways from Perth no doubt
what was it all about
when you weren't sleeping did you figure it out?
did you have any doubts?
you shouldn't have.......it's classic and I haven't even seen it yet
A toast to the afterlife.......wherever the galaxy spilled him
an ode to Heath Ledger
no doubt the Joker Killed Him

I've always thought that we, as human beings, would be naive and arrogant to pretend that we're the only life form in the galaxy.

Life

You breathe, and my lungs
rise and fall like winter trees
swaying, sure of spring,

like water-drops, cells
twisting, galaxies pulsing
with abundant life.

Radio Waves

In SETI
Radio waves are the beacon
Of hope This is
Anthropocentrism Because
Eusociality (the hive mind) as with
Bees, ants and wasps
That trail & discover
Is a totally different matter
So might they
They may be undiscoverable
This way via the top hits
Of the galactic jive

Go then
There are animals right here
First to find

When you look at the stars and the galaxy, you feel that you are not just from any particular piece of land, but from the solar system.
