Little Star

Orion Nebula

Simple Star
Pin of light
Shines bright
Thru the night
100,000 million inside
the Milky Way,

Is that it
A pin of light.
No,
Chaotic torch
Switched on
1,50 to infinity
million km away.

Twinkle twinkle,
STOP
That rhyme again
Scintillate, rewind
Please upgrade.

Zoom, zoom
Zoom in
Zoom more
more & more

Nebula STOP –
cold clouds
filled with
dust & gas –
Shrinking clouds
Bunched up tight
clump together
in chaotic flight
Why?
Gravitational attraction
You guessed right.

Clumpy cloud?
That don’t sound right,
No the clumps
Are so hot & dense
Hot nuclear fusion
reactions commence.

At 10 million °C
With such ferocity
Clump no more
Plasma sphere
Of intensity.

I am a star
A star is born

Why it twinkles?
Sends its light
From far away
lights refracts,
(bends a bit)
Earth’s turbulence
causes it.

Twinkle twinkle
Little star
Now we know
What you are.
