Black Hole

Two astronomers embark for the ride of a lifetime. Little did they know one for an adventure that would be their end.

Lift off began. They head to space on a mission. All the beauty and wonder they saw twinkled in their eyes.

Then, suddenly a swirling blackness raged beyond. With loss of words they stood in their spaceship.

Suddenly, one passenger decides it’s time. Time for her adventure. She now knows her final adventure. She says to the other her heart’s intent.

Without stopping her, they move forth. At a safe distance from the pure darkness that destroys everything around, she put on her spacesuit as they said their last goodbye.

Each had a timer in their hands. The doors opened and they both clicked the timer button as she took her first step to the unknown.  The two timers clicked as one.  Leaping towards the rage, she never looked back. Determined eyes, she neared the hole. Her friend watched as she Vanish from light to darkness.

How she felt against the gravitational pull, we don’t know. But the two timers stopped ticking as one when the darkness took her in.

Panopoly

Now, I have never heard of Panoply. And that word seems kind of funny. Reminds me of monopoly. It’s the only word I know that is “nopoly”. And if I search for a meaning for nopoly, the word to come up is monopoly. With my lack of knowledge on panopoly, I will try and write something. If it doesn’t make sense… that is why. And I am sorry.

How was it? Did I butcher panopoly? If so, sorry!
