[419] The Sun Queen

An eye of an alien⁣
oversees the ⁣
quest of a nearly ⁣
enlightened being⁣
She practices the act of silencing⁣
the orchestra of doom ⁣
in her head and observe⁣
it on her hand as if to control it all⁣
A billion planets in her head⁣
but she only seeks the sun and⁣
to able to see in its blinding white light⁣

The cycles of life and death⁣
karma and time ⁣
How to not get lost in its tune⁣
or the hues of a rainbow ⁣
in search of the white⁣
The seductive fantasy of excess only⁣
brings her closer to the fluctuating colours ⁣
of her being that she tries to relinquish⁣

And so she does in favour of the dazzling flash⁣
The beginning of it all coincides with⁣
the present and the future and she finally⁣
sees the destruction and creation by asteroids and ⁣
the discovery of triangles and circles⁣ and her mind
and the merging of a billion faces into her⁣
She is finally free from the cosmic cycle ⁣of finding her colour
as she ascends to become the sun, the white itself

As NaPoWrimo begins, this is my creation of its first prompt.
“Sometimes, writing poetry is a matter of getting outside of your own head, and learning to see the world in a new way. To an extent, you have to “derange” yourself – make the world strange, and see it as a stranger might. To help you do that, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem inspired by this animated version of “Seductive Fantasy” by Sun Ra and his Arkestra.” If you are trying NaPoWriMo this year don’t hesitate to drop a link below!

My poetry is inspired by the beautiful animation to the music of Sun Ra, which I also discovered a few months back. If you are curious, you should read his poetry and about his life as it’s pretty fascinating what he went through, and through that what he created with his band.

  1. Beautiful poem, as always!
    And this sounds pretty interesting, I might give these Prompts a shot. Let’s make the most of Napowrimo on WordPress this year 😀

  2. Great. I totally agree. Derange, rearrange, and make the world strange. What a fascinating post. Let’s do exchange and make a change.
