Star-Nosed Mole

Star-Nosed Mole

Pig-snouted, fleshy-finger-feeler rimmed
star nose sniffer, using star-touch to push, tell, taste.
Do stars shine underground
if nobody can see?
Dig, dig, dig through the earth to a star
nosed center. Who knows of what earth-stars
smell, touch, taste?
She knows, the mole. She who has
sniffed the star-centered earth.
Star-dusted dust, dirt, grime.
Do you dare hold close the starry-faced
blind-eyed ground digger?
Do you dare draw near?
Come carefully, for the star-nosed
knows what stars dwell
under the surface of you.


  1. If it's blind, doesn't matter if that star shines. Such odd looking creatures.

  2. I have seen them made scary in the film City Of Ember, where there was a giant one down in the tunnels.

    1. Oh man, these could be terrifying if done right!

  3. A creatures with a purpose, moles never see where they are going, but just keep going.

    1. Haha, that's so true! What would it be like to be one of them?

  4. You've got me wondering if there are stars shine underground. Could be? Maybe melted stars are what make the magma.
