You tell me about the stars,
the scattering, smattered freckles of the sky,
andromeda and cassiopeia and orion,
your eyes eager green telescopes, glassy with intrigue.

I’ve never wanted to go into scape. There’s just something so disconcerting about the idea of floating and being insignificant. I guess i don’t have to be in space to feel this. The simple view from my telescope is good enough.

Look through it and tell me what you see. Stars? Planets? Maybe you’re searching for something no one can see. What a lonely pursuit… May I search with you?

The telescope is an enchanting piece of artwork that many people don’t realize at first glance. In fact, it is less of a scientific observation because the interpretation of the distant heavens is completely and unabashedly in the eye of the beholder.

through a telescope
i saw more than the stars and the sun
there was more out there
things ive never experienced before
i know theres more
i can see it
but i cant be it
theres just no way
except through this telescope

I still believe that the telescope is a heretical device. It gives the ilusion that we can understand distant things by being able to view them in fine detail. Zooming in close to a crevace to see it as a flat plane.

Folding the small mechanism of glass and brass, Huxley sighed, shrugging at his captain. She rose an eyebrow, turning away from him with a drag of her cigar.

look through the telescope and see worlds and stars and distant universes that you wish you were in instead of your own. they live long away lives with different problems and separate lives that really, are not much different from your own. do you wish you had a telescope to see their lives? to be as they are?

Twinkling little wonders in the night sky captivate my attention as my fragile fingers wrap around the telescope in the brisk summer twilight. It’s astonishing how such heavenly bodies can connect two people of such a distance by means of a simple landmark.
By Amanda URL on 10.16.2010
I gazed into the night, quiet, restless. Stars and cars. The only way that I could confront time. Here it was, all of history laid before me, daring me to argue.

Whats new is Luke cant stop getting thrown off of horses. He needs to fix this as being thrown off of a horse is bad for his health.

The stars were there. Through this tiny hole she could see them, millions of them. Just waiting for her to do something, make a move, her first move. Then she saw it – a shooting star. Right across the telescope it flew.

The telescope makes me see things I’ve never had the time to observe before. My eyes shift to the left and to the right, focusing on all the bright stars and far away planets in the dark, night sky.

Galileo paused, pushed away his telescope, and rubbed his eyes. Stepping out onto the balcony, for the first time all night, he took in all the sky at once.

I gazed through that telescope outward to a world that was once my own. The one where the beautiful galaxies held happiness.

Adjust. Position. The tiny, black ocular frame gives way to a whole new world.

The chill wind ruffled his hair and swayed the flowers gently in their beds. “Help me Mama,” he said, nervously standing before the long black tube. Carefully, I covered an eye and instructed him to look without touching. His smile and excitement grew as I quietly explained that he was looking at Jupiter and four of it’s moons, a sight most people would never see.

To see the stars and planets
Things I’d love to know more about
The blanket above and endless possibilities
By Amiee on 10.16.2010
To see far away to the stars to see other worlds different than ours. A tool to see beyond our world.
By Jason on 10.16.2010
I was able to look deeply into people for who they really were. Some of the most happy were the saddest inside. And others had secrets some couldn’t even dream about.
By Marissa URL on 10.16.2010
My hand reached for the telescope; for some reason it’s meaning was so much more to me. I was capable of reaching out to a galaxy that was flourished with happiness, one that held so much more to me.
By Haley URL on 10.16.2010

By Joanna Perez on 10.16.2010

By kayla on 10.16.2010

If you look through your telescope you’ll see a midnight blue circle. Focusing, you’ll observe a cluster of missed opportunities beside a big fat waste of time and a scattering of unfulfilled wishes. If you look closer, that small, sparkling dot you see in the distance is every dream you’ll never have.

The telescope is a window to an alternate dimension that exists only on Mars, Venus, and that one asteroid that’s about three asteroids into the belt and looks like a bean. That asteroid is the most delicious of asteroids.

i only saw you when i look through my telescope.

A traves del telescopio, Esteban deseaba ser el hombre de la escena;sobre la cama, frente a ella.

Si el telescopio esta dañado , no tengo entretenimiento para esta noche. Tendré que salir.

i look through a telescope to see my future i hesitate do i really want to know what lays ahead am i ready to understand

Again. I fumble. It falls from my ands and smashes to the ground into a pile or brass and glittering crumbles. I sweep the glass shards away with my boot and call my first mate to bring me his. I curse under my breath at the shoddy construction of telescopes nowadays.
By Erika Phoenix URL on 10.16.2010
Some things allowed you to see further than others. And the telescope did just that. With it, you’re not confined to just looking at the things on Earth. But much further than that. A place of stars and beauty.
By Weng Yee Loke URL on 10.16.2010
I’ve already written about a telescope and frankly, there are only so many times a telescope can be written about. My past entry included the measurement of fifty feet, and color sort-of-purple, much like the bar on the bottom that is moving. This is my first oneword.
By Saunders URL on 10.16.2010
I usually think about astronomy when I think about telescopes. I have never actually looked through one, but I think I’d quite enjoy it. I used to get this word confused with the word ‘microscope’, but that’s just silly.
By Jen on 10.16.2010
He raises the scope to his eye once more. the fog is thick, but he’s sure there was a sail across the bow. the wind shifts and he sees the glimpse of a lantern.
By EliseV URL on 10.16.2010
it’s october 16th and it’s some little boys birthday. in a little town he looks up to the sky with his brand new telescope and searches for himself among the stars. through a broad sky and focused star he finds ambition.

He looked for the flag to still be standing. There was no sign of tattered material in the winds. The battle still raged blood flowing on both sides.
she looked into the sky ; the stars shined so bright. there was supposed to be a meteor shower tonight. her telescope was in place. The excitement coursed through her veins. ‘who knows when something like this could happen again!’ she thought.
By Saddie on 10.17.2010
The telescope escaped from my grip. Falling, hundreds of feet down the horrible cliff. I watched in dismay as it reached nearer to the walkway beneath me, and struck an elderly man atop the head. He collapsed to the ground, and lay motionless…

The telescope rested quietly under a glass case now. It had outlived it’s usefulness. Much like it’s owner. Still ruggedly handsome, the gentleman’s peered out over the sea. His long blonde hair, once tied with a black ribbon, now cropped short and as pale white as the sails that once adorned his beloved ship.
