“The Solace of Artemis”

by Paula Meehan

For Catriona Crowe

I read that every polar bear alive has mitochondrial DNA
from a common mother, an Irish brown bear who once
roved out across the last ice age, and I am comforted.
It has been a long hot morning with the children of the machine,

their talk of memory, of buying it, of buying it cheap, but I,
memory keeper by trade, scan time coded in the golden hive mind
of eternity. I burn my books, I burn my whole archive:
a blaze that sears, synapses flaring cell to cell where

memory sleeps in the wax hexagonals of my doomed and melting comb.
I see him loping towards me across the vast ice field
to where I wait in the cave mouth, dreaming my cubs about the den,
my honied ones, smelling of snow and sweet oblivion.

Where seeds of ones and zeroes

For Dawn

The Dawn spacecraft observed Ceres for an hour on Jan. 13, 2015, from a distance of 238,000 miles (383,000 kilometers). A little more than half of its surface was observed at a resolution of 27 pixels. This animated GIF shows bright and dark features. Image Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLA/MPS/DLR/IDA/PSI

I am Dawn

Lisa Cox

I am Dawn
Traversing endless
Night
As the monarch
Migrates
With slow
But steady flutters
So I have made
My journey
Slow and steady
In this field
Of starry flowers
Coming to rest
Round smallest gem
Ceres
Listen while
I whisper back
All Ceres’ secrets
I am dawn
Small light
In endless night

Deep in dark waters swims
