Hail the Cosmos

From the shores of Arecibo
a digital moan climbs –
Is there anybody out there?
relentless as fear
broadcast to the night.
Drifting over somnolent drones,
a blueprint on binary wing –
Are we all alone?
Streaming into stygian vaults,
the tread of light years ring –
Is there anybody out there?
Radio waves lap the strands of Gliese
where fallen stars cluster –
those deep space seas where battleships muster.

  1. The way your describe the infinity has such a poise, it makes me want to pick up radio transmitting as a hobby.
    Wonderfully intricate and a thorough insight of the “out there”.
    What a vast imagery to be lost at. Loved it!
