17 (who?)
Is deep space silent?
Amid the revolving spheres.
In perpetual night.

Or does God whisper?
Echoing across light-years vast.
Filling the void with song.
This poem was written for the :iconprojectdfc: December Form Challenge 2012 :[link]

This style is the featured form for December 9th of the DFC Challenge. Here is a description of the form:

    The Sedoka is a Japanese form. It centres around the
    idea of Questions and Answers. The syllabic count is
    that of haiku (5,7,5) and there are 6 lines, 3 in each
    stanza. The content can be of any theme but one
    must question or mention something in the first, and
    then either contradict or answer in the second. It's all
    about leaving you guessing and making people think.

Wow. I agree with your assessment that this is the best. I'm impressed! Really impressed!

Interestingly, I have heard that, even though it is a vacuum, there is a constant noise in space. And it has characteristics similar to music. I can't remember where I read that, it was one of the many obscure articles which my dad showed when I was little, but remembering it adds another dimension to your poem.

Thank you! Thank you! :D I'm dreadfully sorry that I failed to respond in a timely manner.


It seems I've heard of that phenomenon also. I want to say that it was represented more as...static-like sounds, like a 'white noise.'


This piece was a classic example of: "Wow...that came together really easy."


Cause I tell you what, sometimes it just. doesn't. flow. :shrug: ;)
