I blamed the moon

Sunday, July 21st, 2019

I blamed the moon
when the wildness struck;
spinning away on my own axis
to the far side of the moon.
The gravitational pull was too strong,
tides pushed and pulled me,
surged blood along my veins.
I circled the earth in waves of light,
my dark side hidden from view.
Later, I waned, when the neap tide came
and the sun died for the day.
I shouted and screamed and danced at the moon
but there was no reply.

I told everyone the moon made me do it.
Said it was just a phase I was going through.

Moon Kid Rings

Moon kid rings a cloud
Deftly lassoed by space thread
Pulled to hard crater
Candy soft bed for the night
But it faded to vapour!

Potentially Me

Potentially Me, potentially
Patterns growing
Swerling round and curling down
But down is up and up is down

Potentially Me, potentially
Patterns in the sky
In the ground
In the stars
Waiting to be found
Curling inwards as concepts virally abound

Potentially Me, potentially
Patterns seething
Order from chaos
And the chaos is breathing
Life is needing what chaos is feeding

The struggle of slumbered light
Jealously crushed by Moons raging spite
Foreboding white spectral eye
Governed by the heavens cyclic tie
Cold ground awash with darkened blanket
The sins of the sun allowed to forget
Cosmic force stirs onyx earth
Brings witness to nocturnal birth
Creatures stirred by Pans hypnotic lyre
Danced merry with mischiefs contagious fire
Realm of the sleeper in dreamy state
Moonshine claws at Hades gate
Welcoming those embracing death
Guided swiftly by ancient spirits breath
Clutched hopes of rebirth by Gaia neath
To remain eternal in mother’s peace.

She whips her silver bulls
that heave her chariot
riding rough on navy-black
silk sea turning under hooves

Animals under flotsam light
freeze as hedgehogs
with pinpricked eyes
on snow trod motorways

The ocean of air sinks below
to ice mist/ raining diamonds
so even the softest paw
crunches compact grass

But above in slow swirl/ stars
blink/ Selene coruscates/ casting
black over sleepless fish

Bats and owls dart through grass
ripping through cloudless sky
shrieking howl hymns to death

Once I thought it was easy
Once I thought it all defined
Then came along another truth
I had to stop and find
My brain stretched
My mind popped
And in a chair I did flop
At thoughts of a void
Filled with billion of glowing plasma balls
I investigated using mathematical tools
Showing systems of rocks
And gaseous spheres
Ballet dancing with icy shards
Circling these pin point stars
And the stars bunched in fried egg shapes
With globules and dumbbells at any rate
Pulsing with annihilation
Galactic clutter that clusters
I felt I needed a vacation
So I moved onto super clusters
And voids billions of light years wide
Killing of my planetary pride
With invisible planets and stars burning cold
All many of phenominian yet to unfold
And just as this was all sinking in
The synapses began to sizzel and sing
With giant balloons inflating
Membranes and hand claps of gods for the rating
Thoughts spiralling around the concepts
Big Bang
Big Crunch
I scrabbled for some chocs to munch
And then with suns ringing like bells
With solar quakes
I stood back and with a shake
Saw it was all minute
Something small, insiginificant and really rather cute
Like the realisation of the child that was me
There was a whole world out there to see
The world kept expanding
And then the Universe rushed in to fill the gaps
Expanding my mind to the max
Now there is a multiverse
Which makes me smile and… curse
I ponder what on this adventure to take
And hope, just hope I have enough Kendal mint cake
