AbstractThis thesis serves as a capstone of poetry for the University of Arizona Honors College Bachelor’s in Creative Writing. The Astronomy of a Dandelion is an exploration of the arts and sciences in conversation with one another, embodying both the personal and the technical throughout the manuscript. The originally proposed theme of astropoetry broadened into the use of astronomical imagery, metaphors, and other figurative language to describe neuroscientific issues of mental health, relationships of varying kinds, and the reconstruction of routine occurrences into something rather extra than ordinary. This is a manuscript that requires the sciences and the humanities to be mutually inclusive, accessible in different ways to myriad readers.
