    Challenge: heatwave, interstellar, wagons, jungle, sheep, wondrous

    colonization

    the last global heatwave had broken
    Neptune's sheep fomented no discord

    indifferent to the new shepherds arriving
    near the asphalt jungle's bay aboard

    a wondrous interstellar star-wagon -
    first of billions to a new world thriving

    Enjoyed this colonization poem. Sooner to be due, than we might expect!

    Challenge accepted!

    Next: reed, harmonic, measure, thread, poetic, sacrifice

    Rambling poetics

    The reed bends in harmony
    with its surroundings
    but I don't want it to bend
    I want it to resist.

    The yelding to measure
    is a poetic sacrifice.
    The yarn wants to be infinite
    like the thread of a spider.

    Next: rewind, notice, almond,azure, downtown, cherries.

    Wonderful poem !

    Challenge accepted !

    Challenge: rewind, notice, almond, azure, downtown, cherries

    mushrooms

    let us rewind to the days when almond trees
    blossomed white and cherries trees' pink
    were the most noticeable sight downtown
    in Spring under bright azure skies...
    replaced by the sight of mushrooms of
    green or blue or brown or camo tarp/tents
    feeding upon the destitute living outcasts
    who drive grocery carts for a meager living

    Next: ship, imagine, shelter, protest, charter, memory


    A small but persistent ship
    sails the charter of memory.
    It braves its sometimes clear,
    sometimes muddy, waters.
    During the adventure of imagination,
    It may venture the boldness of a protest,
    or seek the respite of a shelter.
    Whatever worlds sunken or unveiled
    it may encounter
    it provides the movement
    necessary to their subsistence.

    Next: music, haunting, show, electric guitar, multitude, rain.

    totems

    I entered
    into a stream
    of quantified consciousness
    at my leisure
    following footprints
    into the forest
    my totemic journey
    seeking understanding
    just begun

    Tinker Boo Rabbit

    Tinker Boo Rabbit
    Much charisma had it.
    It made a fervorous speech
    on an island of which
    the rabbits all
    used to walk in the diagonal.
    He examined the condition of a mine
    Which was everything but fine
    and that was it.

    Next: reception, waves, electric, Uranus, reign, reset.

    Challenge: reception, waves, electric, Uranus, reign, reset

    walking the cat back

    the reception at literary Uranus
    where Titania and Oberon reign
    was quite electric, nevertheless
    much better than Jupiter's mess
    at the debacle at Ganymede, for
    the overlords found no defenses
    Earth's AI could sally heretofore -
    so waves of ships in their campaign
    to tame Sol's system commences
    a reset and all eyes return upon
    Earth thinking a new era was to dawn

    Enjoyed this New Era poem.

    Next: ennui, watcher, threadbare, Mayfly, sunbeam, entrance

    The sunbeam and the Mayflys

    It was on the second day
    after the great extermination.
    The exhausted sun sent out
    a threadbare timid beam
    to the devastated earth.
    Broken spaceships lay around
    surrounded by melted down creatures.
    A vision of ominous silent horror
    threatening never to disappear.
    The weak sunbeam became full of ennui,
    not to say depressed,
    trying to bring life and warmth to a scenario
    which even the breeze had given up.

    Suddenly, at the entrance of a dark hole,
    it beheld some movement,
    like a very slight slapping of wings.
    The sunbeam stopped short
    in front of the cave and watched:
    Three Mayflies were doing there usual dance,
    as if nothing momentous had happened.

    The little sunbeam suddenly got big and strong
    and the sun in full atire graced the stricken soil.
    For it understood that the cycle of life and death
    hadnīt been interrupted.
    Life was emerging again even if modestly
    with the ephemeral Mayflies.

    Next: anger, turmoil, earthquake, tremor, rumbling, cataclysm.

    Thanks! My word choice is somewhat violent this time. I thought you might be a bit bored at too much piece.

    Challenge: anger, turmoil, earthquake, tremor, rumbling, cataclysm

    tsuris-tsuris

    the earth's anger turned inward
    starting with a small tremor
    then unabating rumbling; a
    cataclysmic earthquake creating
    turmoil on land; a tsunami wall
    racing sound in the open sea -
    slowing only as it crested distant
    coastal shores resulting in an
    unrelenting surge scourging inland

    Cataclysmic indeed!

    Challenge accepted!

    Next: stem, grasshopper, toadstool, sword fern, aloof, mask

    (Seems I didnīt post this yesterday)


    The Grasshopper

    An open childrenīs book,
    pictures coming alive!

    The sword fern leaves sway merrily in
    the wind
    The toadstools are cute little
    red houses talking to each other.
    The grasshopper tries to stay aloof
    perched on a big stem.
    But his sternness is just a mask,
    he enjoys his reign
    of paper.

    Next: Grass, party, dancing, djinns, stairway, entrancing.
