Nebula

From supernova,
I opened my eyes
Creation from destruction
In dark and endless skies
These far horizons for parsecs
On every point of a gilded compass
From this violent womb
New life shall the old life surpass

Benign deity, bemused observer
Of that which has been before
I am crowned with this halo
Around a bleak and barren rocky core
Gathered momentum on a single axis
Spinning into eternal dark
A collection of frantic collisions
Around the single birthing spark
