Throwing my hat into the ring of, “I asked ChatGPT to…” I requested a poem about the end of the Solar System. Here is what the computer came up with!
In the cosmos’ grand design, a tale unfolds,
Of celestial ballets, stories yet untold.
A chapter nears its close, a final plea,
As the solar system meets eternity.
Once a vibrant dance of planets in the sky,
Now a waning symphony, a last goodbye.
The Sun, once fierce and radiant, now subdued,
Its brilliance dims, its light begins to elude.
Mercury, a messenger, swift and fleet,
Now cradled in the Sun’s fading heat.
Venus, once adorned with radiant grace,
Gone too soon, without a trace.
Earth, our cradle blue, the home we cherish,
Succumbs to time’s unyielding perish.
Oceans rise, and mountains bow,
As life’s grand tapestry unravels now.
Mars, the rusty warrior in the night,
A barren land, devoid of life’s delight.
Its ancient rivers long since dried,
In the silent depths, its secrets hide.
Jupiter, with storms and tempest’s might,
Now sighs in solitude, bereft of light.
Its moons bear witness to this cosmic night,
A final dance before the fading sight.
Saturn’s rings, once a celestial crown,
Now dissipate, in spirals down.
A shimmering whisper, a fading gleam,
A memory of its former dream.
Uranus and Neptune, cold and serene,
In frigid silence, they await unseen.
Their icy cores, now growing cold,
As the solar system’s story unfolds.
Beyond the orbits, in the vast expanse,
Pluto, a distant speck, takes one last chance.
A remnant of a bygone age,
A tiny echo on history’s stage.
And so it is, as stars begin to weep,
The solar system drifts into sleep.
The dance of worlds comes to an end,
A cosmic tale no words can mend.
Yet, in the darkness, a glimmer bright,
New beginnings await in the night.
In distant realms, beyond our grasp,
The universe unfurls its eternal clasp.
So let us cherish our time, our space,
Embrace the wonders we now face.
For when the solar system meets its doom,
In the cosmos’ womb, new galaxies bloom.
Shout-out to ChatGPT for tallying Pluto among the Solar System’s residents to opine about.
