SHOOTING STARS

 

All of us are richly blessed,

our inner eyes have seen to

it. But what of matters Jupiter

in thoughts of distant moons.

Imagine it, if on a journey

through our dreams to Mars

via the glittering starlit nights,

 

Galaxies on a planetary map

had brought your name to

fame. What routes might be

displayed on signposts there:

Moon Girl Mountains could

be one, The Wanderings of

Don another. And yes, the

 

Heights of Po a further thought.

I wonder who from the crowd

of Write Out Loud is mentioned

in the years to come. Or will

they succumb to Writer’s cramp

before their running out of fuel?

Come, give to me your thoughts

 

on who should next be centre

stage if artist’s palettes could

create a scheme like this – and

tell me thus, which poet might you

nominate from Writeoutloud with

suggestions for their Martian nom

de plumes in spangled galaxies

Can't wait for Don's new build in Bloggerville - perhaps he'll name it Thalia's Croft and hold aloft the title of a champ on WOL. 👍

Thanks Po. My nomination would be for the late Mersey-sider poet Harry O'Neill. Great gentleman that he was. His profile can still be found in our directory. I wonder what his family would have wished for him to be named after in the galaxy. 👍

What a night, dreams upon the threshold
returned to see what's new
Don is taciturn, there's a surprise
honestly who knew.

At moment am bit taciturn
Otherwise engaged
Building house in Bloggersville
(I need a second stage)

(address top of profile...all welcome...no drinks yet..sorry....Thalia likes it...says she wants to keep WOL as holiday shack.....)

'The Wanderings of Don'? how apt
As I take off and travel
Equipped with rhyming bag et al
(I hope I don't unravel)

😎

Maybe 'Philipos Greek Muse Bus Tours' signpost? I'm sure Thalia would promote it...

Watch this space
Far more to come
Of that, I am assured...

I study the stars and the planets
Astrology is my map
I'm off to bed perchance to dream
Its time to have a nap

In the morn when I arise
to P's great poem, I'll turn
and see who else has posted here
and who's sadly taciturn

Go P

Blessings
Po
