TO THE STARS
-by Zigmund Tauberg-
If you read the Divine Comedy
you find that the genius of Dante
uses a superb final:
“To The Stars.”
he understood that the people always
dreamed of the flight toward
the sky, stars and constellations.
Today we are pushed
by the same yearning
but we have more knowledge,
so sooner or later
the old dream of beyond the blue,
“To The Stars”,
will come true.

The Universal Moth
has a strong nose.
It perches on edge of a black hole,
extends its proboscis.

What do you think the Pointers show us?
The true Southern Cross?
the Coalsack Nebula,
just in case you run out with the coals
during your weekend BBQ.

The famous Cone Nebula can be found in the constellation of Monoceros
and it's one of those star forming factories in our galaxy
which already created a very young star cluster
(the Christmas tree, NGC 2264)
I have always wished for a
Christmas Tree like this.

A lucky girl went to Fortunatae Islands
(an old alternative name for the Canary Islands),
looked to the south
and cried because unfortunately,
she could not entirely see her favourite constellation,
the Southern Cross (Crux).
So, an unhappy girl
in the Happy Islands…

Around other stars
enslaved heavenly bodies.
And nobody cares.
