Poetry on astronomy and nature

Age Rating:


Let’s say that the kids have been a horror about Christmas and it stress you out. You could yell, scream and argue with them. But common sense kicks in. You fetch your winter coat and put on boots and hang out an the backyard for a little bit. It’s night.

And it’s all under the ecliptic. You see Gemini with their two stars Pollux and castor then you see auriga with it’s star the capella. Soon you see the Pleiades to the south west and to the south east you see Sirius in Canis Major. The different stars and star clusters pointing in all different directions making an x. You just keep looking. Breath. And walk closers. Can you feel the luminous sphere closer to you. Then go back into the house refreshed. How Dow you feel?

Sarah Luongo: I'm a big fan of the format of the book- the concept of incorporating poems and within the story and sectioning off periods of the story with each poem. It made it easier to read, and made the unimaginable easier to comprehend. What some people may skip over may be the most important part in this...

Fabia Scali-Warner: Wow. This works reminds me of Allen Ginsberg, and at times even Prevert. The arching storyline is interesting, but I loved the care given to every verse. What a gem!

Rosanna Wiltshire: Great plot, Charlotte is getting slightly annoying at this point, but hopefully she matures further in. Check for spelling and grammatical errors within the story. I found myself re reading a few times because of the spelling of some words or "you're" being used instead of "your".
