|Rising to the challenge of NaPoWriMo|
Sky Pirates No. 8 by quartertime
Here's a taste of some of the interesting writing that has already appeared ...
On Imperturbable Music, the author muses about his seeing Saturn through a telescope:
The first view was a jolt.
It really looked like they said it would,
pale and perfect, ansa to ansa.
A platonic ideal of itself
Taken from Planet's Above, we are led to consider the line between our dreams and reality:
So hide, obscure, amongst the fading wings
of Icarian ice, now stripped and set ablaze -
but know; our sleepless eyes will find you there,
unless ... unless you are just myths, of course.
From Tycho Girl's blog, we are inspired to keep on going, like a rocket:
watch the blue line
trailing from my candle
’cause I’m getting there.
So if you enjoy writing, astronomy, NaPoWriMo, and especially all three, you'll want to check out the following blogs this month (twitter handles also noted):
