The Mysterious Castle in the Sky

by Mary E. Lowd

A cathedral in space
Beyond the nebula shaped like a horse
Orbiting an ocean world
In turn, orbiting a black hole
When the dolphin-folk
Of the world below
Thought it couldn’t get any worse
—too dark, too cold—
They found hope
A castle in their sky

Who left it behind?
