In The Beginning Again

#1 Post by Kenneth2816 » 11 Sep 2022, 00:50

Jupiter has 53 named moons
and I want to marry them all,

buy a castle in the mountains
where each would have her own hill.

We'd birth new worlds, and I'd
jostle them on my lap gently

say, ' there, there' , feed them
with a bottle. I - the polygamoonist-

am Father to a peopless universe.
Maybe a few good years left.

A charmer. A deft, light handed touch.

Jupiter has 53 named moons
and I want to marry them all,

buy a castle in the mountains
where each would have her own hill.

polygamoonist - this poem sportingly
discovers this new diction -

leading me to explore these -

polygalunarmist polygalunamist

polyga⚪️mist


(And a workshop recast to a different tense, and with lightly modified close, follows below)

An out-of-this-world tribute to the Imagination that revolves around the moon

Imoongination

Jupiter has 53 named moons
and I will to marry them all,

buy a castle in the mountains
where each would have her own hill.

We'll birth new worlds, and I'll
jostle them on my lap gently

say, ' there, there' , feed them
with a bottle. I - the polygamoonist -

Father to a peopless universe.
Maybe a few good light-years left
