This is the poem Celestial, written by the talented poet Nicholas Ray. This combat veteran writes beautiful poetry. Poetry that we are more than happy to share with you.
Celestial is what we call a “typewriter poem.” This poem has been “written” using a typewriter. Many poets these days use a typewriter to create something different. A poem that is different from those who are “made” using a computer. There is nothing against that, it is another way to express oneself.
How can someone not love Celestial, when it’s about love. But in this case, there is an unhappy truth behind this poem. The girl that Nicholas wrote this for, she doesn’t love him back. No matter what, he still finds her amazing.
By Nicholas Ray
Amidst the carnage of the world
She skips across the moon
Dances upon the sun
And swims within the stars.
