    CRISPR critters... Tanka https://www.newscientist.com/definition/what-is-crispr/ (antlers/chewing/ horse/chromosome/door)

    all it took was chang-
    ing five chromosomes - I walked
    through the door and the
    horse was busily trying
    to chew its velvet antlers

    Thanks! Oh my!

    carbon/yellow/box/vacuum/breathe

    A dusty poem

    This is not an interplanetary engine.
    Only a yellow vacuum cleaner
    in a cardboard box
    breathing carbon gas.

    More like a time machine then

    "tttt tttt tttt tt..." / an acrostic sonnet of dubious nature

    this galactic FRB most scintillatingly impressed -
    technologist worldwide were universally obsessed
    toward NGC 4631 - a barred galactic spiral dressed
    too like an ultraviolet gold/silver herring at rest

    that resides in Canes Venatici - a constellation best
    thought of containing quasar TON 618, a coalesced
    titan - one of the most massive black holes expressed
    this side of divine creation - a visible quasar guessed

    to be a distant 18.2 billion light-years away - yet assessed
    to be about 10.8 billion years old ! - an L-a emitter blest
    touting a special wavelength emitted by somewhat distressed
    tonally neutral hydrogen, but I digress - as the FRB wrest

    the laws of physics to its ultimate Einstein/Hawking test
    tacitly exploring a signal reminiscent of the French Metal band Celeste

    Impressive! Can´t say that I understood each detail of it, but it is a true piece of intergalactiness and probably would look also fine in the astronomy thread.

    regret/solid/whet/dune/tunnel

    At the sight
    of those dazzling
    feats,
    I modestly
    whet my wit
    Regretfully
    retiring
    into the
    most solid tunnel
    of the earth,
    dreaming about
    dunes, camels
    and chameleons.

    Edited to include the forgotten word "solid".

    Solid !

    I'll use the same challenge:

    the captive of tinfou

    gold dunes shimmering
    no regrets for my escape
    whetted blade thrown thus:
    a solid footing adds force
    tunnel vision guides its flight

    Lol! Got the message!
    the captive of tinfou-Enjoyed the synthetic story.

    gloss/paradox/deadpan/latchkey/itch

    The Paradox

    No use glossing over this
    and I itch
    to discover the truth:
    How come that sublime speaker
    deadpanned as soon
    as he turned his latchkey?

    I often pondered over this paradox.

    Great poem !

    I'm in Heaven

    Sweet's the word tickling the ivories -
    outside sheltered from the sun by an
    umbrella the size of a small cabana
    as the tide rolls on - I have my fans:
    the coconut crabs who idle by, the shrill
    gulls who find my playing laughingly
    entertaining; it's only the bronzed gods
    who find my playing underwhelming -
    but I'm the one truly in heaven as I play

    Very cute! A baby elephant?

    Next: challenge/poise/fearless/thread/subtle

    Diplomacy

    A fearless poise
    is ever a challenge
    and so often a useless one.

    An elephant in a crystal´s shop
    Is bound to break
    delicate dishes.

    Being subtle demands tact
    the numerous forum threads
    bear witness to it

    Enjoyed Baby elephant ? (lol) Love the metaphor.

    wing and a prayer
    (cushion/plane/synergy/shimmering/soundless)

    airplanes fly upon a cushion of air; their
    synergistic forces on a wing and a prayer
    shimmering tarmacs greet all who repair
    to milieus where soundless hopes square
    with no onerous expectations whatsoe'er

    Enjoyed!

    (trial/door/album/lightning/puzzle)

    The mystery

    No selfies,
    no instantaneous takes:
    When you go though the door
    you see on the table:
    a dusty brown album
    with its faded photos
    open on its last pages.

    Time congealed the images
    and muted the sounds.
    Only bouts of. lightening
    Occasionally lit the room
    since the fatal trial.

    What really happened here?
    The puzzle remains.

    Next challenge: footage/roadside/ chameleon/craft/planting

    Interesting vignette and puzzle

    critter cams

    it's a craft to place critter cams - planting
    them chameleon-like along enchanting
    obscure critter path's roadsides where they
    amble, romp, and sometimes stalk - so later
    one may retrieve footage to reveal what may
    the wonders of local wildlife at one's leisure
