ETERNAL STAR by AstroBoy1 ETERNAL STAR by AstroBoy1
Eternal Star * Cosmic Manifestation

Shinning brilliantly from the womb of a birthing nebula, a new-born quasar "star" illuminates the central regions of a newly forming spiral galactic mass or protogalaxy. Galactic arms spiral outward, thousands of light years or trillions of miles, revealing myriad clusters of star-filled nebulae with swirling orbs of stellar gases and dust which will ultimately give birth to new generations of stellar families. An Earth-like planet is bathed in the virgin light of the cosmic lighthouse, otherwise known as a quasar, as it transits creating intriguing imagery of a celestial, Christmas Star, vignette. Two other companion worlds (one in the extreme upper right and the other near the extreme left middle) are approaching similar stellar conjunctions making this a tri-stellar/planetary conjunction. Such scenes as this, once considered only hypothetical, are now supported by astronomical science. In recent years extra-solar worlds (planets orbiting other stars/suns outside Earth's solar system) have been discovered using orbiting space telescopes such as the Hubble Space Telescope as well as ground-based radio telescopes. These extra-solar worlds or exoplanets orbit distant stars/suns, some similar to Earth's sun, while others orbit giant and super giant stars immensely larger than Earth's closest star, the Sun. Considering the aforementioned, one would reason that life must assuredly exist on at least some of these remote worlds. God is the Creator and Master of the Cosmos and everything (past, present and future) is a manifestation of Him. We can, therefore, more fully embrace an ever deeper and richer understanding of the following verse from Psalms 19:1 . . .

"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands." Psalms 19:1 (NIV)

Eternal Star * Cosmic Manifestation
©2010 * Michael C. Turner


Eternal Star, your light does shine across the depths of time and space,
illuminating mortal souls of every kind and every race.
From the portals of eternity your love for all does embrace.

Across your majestic Cosmos your holy beacon of light does shine,
from the golden shores of your Heavenly abode so wondrously sublime,
illuminating the spectral darkness like a brilliant lighthouse divine.

Your Infinitely Brilliant Mind created the heavens so mysteriously Wondrous . . .
Your Mighty Holy Word ignited myriad galaxies of stars so brilliantly Glorious . . .
Your Holy Divine Manifestation in the flesh proclaimed you universally Victorious . . .

"The Heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands." Psalms 19:1 (NIV)*


May Christ, The Eternal Star,
Illuminate And Manifest Within You
A Life That Is
Wondrous, Glorious And Victorious . . .

I've always been a big fan of blue. And you use it very nicely in this piece. I see some slight repition in three different places with the small planets by the bigger stars and them being placed in the same general area to those stars. I dont' know if you noticed that while you were working on this, but with the big one as the focal point right there, it was easier for me to catch the relation with the smaller pairs that are in the top right corner and near the center of the left edge.
But it's still a nice piece worthy of my favorite's list. Very cool result that I know I would never be able to match myself. ^_^
