Poem “Nova”

Cassandra Hagen, features editor

Lost in our own worlds

Stars that don’t know how to burn

Where have we gone? Drifting away

In a universe of galaxies that forever turn

Planets drift around our heads

Comets and shooting stars pass by 

Every single thing gravitates toward us 

But it’s each other we can’t find 

So we watch the supernovas 

Stars’ colors bursting as they die 

Hoping that if it is each other 

We can meet again in another life 

Coincidentally enough, this was one of the first poems I have ever written and what initially sparked my interest in writing and enamored me with the beauty of the written word. I think it also perfectly encapsulates my love of space and the cosmos and everything in it.
