Les Etoiles


Orion Nebula (M42 / NGC 1976)
: image made in 2006 from Hubble Space Telescope observations taken between 2004 and 2005 (NASA / ESA / M. Robberto and the Hubble Space Telescope Orion Treasury Project Team)

These globes of gold, islands of light,
sought by the eye in dreams,
flash up from fugitive shadow
glittering dust on the roads of night,

and the breath of evening dying

blows them away
