Fay Slimm






There is awe beyond measure
in photographed nebula.

The vison like Starry Night
known as God's Eye bears likeness
to a Van Gogh, light halo
around floating rings of cold
silver stars shows feathery
unpaintable blue, ever
encircling Milky Way stars.
Twinkling light-years afar,
the sight of astonishing
images often admonishes
unaware minds to take care
and respect strangeness out there.

Sages welcome organic diversities
as Heaven's mysterious gifts.

    A fine write Fay. What's strange too, is that I got cut orf - a poem would not upload, now I'm out of sequence. Can't upload another until 24 hours is up! lol.

      Hope your problem of posting is solved by now Orchi - thank you for reading and for your comment.

      Wonderful picture! A beautiful write about it! Very nice, indeed.

      • Fay Slimm

        Thank you dear Christina or the visit and comment - and I agree that the wonderful sighting in the sky is just awesome.

        Heaven’s mysteries will be shown to us in time.

        • Fay Slimm

          So so true my dear friend Goldi - - we do not have to understand the mysteries around us but just give thanks for our experience on this beautiful earth.

          THANKS FAY : The full extent of the Universe is beyond Human Comprehension ! However the NEBULAE we see through the Hubble Telescope have given us glimpse of GLORY ! Their shapes & colours are literally "Out of this World" !
          The EYE of GOD reminds us the without GOD our CREATOR : there would be NO Universe : Solar System : Planet Earth or YOU & US : AMEN.
          Billy Graham said "I look through a Microscope - God is There : I look around me - God is there also and when I look through a Telescope - GOD sure is there as well !
          The Heavens declare the GLORY of GOD : Planet Earth sure shows His Handiwork. Thanks for sharing : Blessings & Love : ANGELA & BRIAN 🧡🧡🧡🧡

          • Fay Slimm

            Yes indeed the extent of the universe is far beyond our understanding as humans on this wonderful globe - - - the glory we see in such visions as nebulae is enough for us to acknowledge a far superior Intelligence and give thanks. The heavens do indeed "declare the glory of God" - a lovely comment and thank you so much.

            My dear Fay,

            There truly “is awe beyond measure in” this “photographed nebula” as there’s awe in the power of your pen! Your ability to describe such beauty is incredible! Thank you for sharing your gift of writing!


            • Fay Slimm

              The wonderful encouragement found in your comment makes my heart warm with thanks dear Laura. So pleased you enjoyed the read.

              I never be ceased to be amazed by the sky both during the day and at night when it displays its jewels.

              • Fay Slimm

                Yes we can as humans never have too much of our sky and its gems and the subject of God's Eye as it is called is an example of the awesome mysteries all around us - thanks Michael for all your support.

                I'm made of stardust - or someone told me i was anyway. A child of the universe no less!
                Given all that, you'd think i'd recognise a picture of my relatives, but i don't.

                Yes those heavenly bodies are truly amazing and tempt mankind to invent/create new knowledge about our relationship with the universe - most of which goes over my head (pun not intended).
                I far prefer your poetic approach and appreciation of what's up there.

                • Fay Slimm

                  Ha - - yes indeed we are made of the same stuff as stars or so I believe - - and to see so much that fills us with wonder is truly humbling when we view what we can of the universe..... thank you D.A. for your visit and read and of course for your welcome support of my efforts in verse.

                  I am overwhelmed
                  by how good it is.

                  • Fay Slimm

                    Many thanks for your encouragement my friend.
