    Enjoyed exoplanet poem.

    Next: morning, blithe, wistful, moonstone, links, garland

    The nostalgic moonstone

    He used to moon wistfully but not blithely
    by the window, in the morning,
    dreaming about garlands and links, yes, links...
    and some distant future on the moon.

    Next: future, Aquarius,bay, violets, multiple, sandstorm.

    Didn't know this definition: Links - Scotland: sand hills especially along the seashore ...
    also Moon - intransitive verb. : to spend time in idle reverie : behave abstractedly. fans mooning over movie stars. (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

    Enjoyed your dreamy poem

    Challenge: future, Aquarius, bay, violets, multiple, sandstorm

    1.20.2024

    entering into Aquarius
    rain and fog intrude upon
    the wee early hours -
    frogs make happy

    still playing the grass widower -
    now over a year
    my woodstove kettle burbles
    cats slumber

    pensively pondering
    a memorial come March
    near Monterey Bay
    to bid a final farewell
    long delayed to a friend
    - perhaps I'll leave a
    bouquet of violets
    if I can get there - close
    to "Dennis the Menace Park"
    - so Patrick... he'd die laughing
    if he could

    in multiple distant lands bayonets
    dance, tanks roll, missiles launch -
    I see a future with sandstorms
    made from the rubble of man -
    great haboobs scornfully scouring
    the earth as a memorial to folly

    ... but I digress

    I knew the verb "mooning" but not this meaning of link. thanks.

    Enjoyed the poem particularly the contrast between the personal memorial and "the memorial to folly".

    Re: video... Sorry about that; I agree, it's a pet peeve of mine also. It's very difficult to find an R&R photo/clip without the little beasties.

    Lol... enjoyed... Loved the brolly stanza

    Nonsensical

    Challenge: Carnival, dances, solace, whirlwind, echo, colorful

    Ode to Carnival

    Carnival arrives ! an expectant
    whirlwind - jubilee of jubilees !
    offering a brief solacement
    to the everyday cares of now high-
    spirited, joyful, boisterous masses
    dancing to dances rechoreographed
    from colorful parades past to the
    raucous, rhythmic, oft syncopated
    music of samba schools vying one
    with another - their volumes cranked
    up to eleven as floats festively
    adorned pass by and revelers exult
    dancing on and on and on and on...

    Next: petrichor, gloaming, virga, nightingale, crescent moon, wisp

    Under the Crescent Moon

    The smell of petrichor
    pervades the air
    after the swift rain,
    while a sole nightingale
    in the gloaming hours
    sings a solo to the virga
    lulling the soft wisps of grass
    to sleep.

    Next: abundant, epiphany, litany, sojourn, enbankment, tide.

    Challenge: abundant, epiphany, litany, sojourn, embankment, tide

    soliloquy of loneliness

    my silent litany of wonderment
    fell upon the full moon this even-
    tide as I sojourn on the way
    listening to the echoing wail of a
    loon - its soliloquy of loneliness

    beyond an embankment I espied
    a great abundance of fireflies
    frolicking nearby sleepy færies
    settling down to bed who shooed
    them gently away when flying nigh

    the stars seemed to leap closer
    as my litany ended and wonder
    upon wonder an epiphany entered
    into my mind of an everlasting joy
    if I but held my righteous course

    Challenge accepted!

    PS-Name of the new fruit and veggies store to be opened next week: Petrichor! Had never read that word before!

    Next: roundabout, feather, brilliant, poetic fires, muse, cloak

    Muses or Heroes

    Poetic fires roundabout
    are often inspired
    by iconic images
    taken out or not
    of real life.
    Muses or heroes
    are celebrated
    by the feather
    in all their brilliance
    or under the discreet cloak
    of anonymity!

    Next: myth(s), legend, status, aspire, ancient, vivid.
