Enceladus

 

Enceladus

do you tuck your dragon scaly feet

within your crinkled surface

of  aluminium foil squished

and painted with your very own snow

 

turquoise slivers

ripple over your pockmarked skin

cryovolcanism splintering the secrets of

a heart warmed with

a captured ocean

 

constantly pounding

exploding crystals into space

through your icy barrier

 

how beautiful you look

a pearly white stone speared upon your own E ring creation

the furthermost jewel of Saturn

orbiting through ages

hidden within the elements of your heart

Athena’s target no more

  1. It was named by William Herschel who discovered it in 1789…he named it Enceladus the Greek mythological figure…one of the Gigantes …the giant children of Gaia (earth)…was reading about it in the physio waiting room last week..the pictures were just beautiful. Apparently Enceladus had dragon scales for feet!
