    The Next Stop

    High upon the pink hilltops, one breeze above the red treetops,
    stars punctured night sprinkling clouds with purple hue
    which caused the falling gold moonbeams
    to filter down in almond streams
    and flame my eyes with Beauty of an alien planet’s view.


    There I was transfixed by majesty without conflict,
    enrapt by a silence throbbing soundless at my ears
    whose symphony made the colors thunder
    across my eyes to wake from slumber
    the Awe that senses flood to wonder what Architect worked here.

    Then Dawn’s breathless yawning rippled pecan light thru morning
    on my landcraft now approaching with its rush of silken roar.
    Overhead it passed a tree, turned and landed close to me.
    When I stepped inside, the capsule shut closed and sealed its door.


    Up! Up! It whisked me. Ground fell from my feet,
    passing clouds that hovered in the upper atmosphere
    which stood as guard and sentry ‘gainst all outlaw cosmic entry
    when my capsule docked so gently in my Starship, by my chair.

    Automatic did the buckles strap my chest and legs and knuckles.
    Jaws tensed, preparing for the up and coming jolt
    in a silence made long lasting ‘til I felt that rocket blasting.
    Then, I closed my eyes. I took one breath, just before the bolt.

    Straight to lightning warp-speed, thrown back in my seat,
    control and throttle gauges blinked their lights upon my berth.
    Unzipped did I my flight suit.

    Unlatched my helmet’s visor too
    to read what was my next stop. Ahhh! That planet they call Earth.

    So I sat down to have lunch read your poem (or science fiction novel) and Im treated to a banquet of Steven Spielberg proportions. A cinematic sci fi thriller. Every word and image filled me up. No room or need for dessert!

      I agree with Bobby. Your words trigger the imagination to conjure wonderful pictures. I love the vibrancy in your poetry

        BobbyDB - No scribbler of words stands taller than when a created work supplies a banquet of Spielberg proportions with cinematic words and images that make you even forget about dessert. Now that's entertainment! Your words have oiled these old bones so that now they rattle just a little bit less today. I thank you Dr. Bobby for your wonderful injection of enjoyment. I'll be calling the AMA in the morning to let them know your therapy works and I'll be back in 2 weeks for booster shots. Hallelujah! Namyh

            Parkinsonspoet - Makes me mighty proud knowing my created words could "trigger the imagination". Thanks P. Now you got me feeling pistol ready for a shoot-out in the middle of town square at high noon with the Sun behind me or either my imagination is ready to write something else. Whoa! I'm mighty happy to help conjure some wonderful pictures for you today and thanks a "lot" for your uplifting words.
            P.S. - Add one more "lot" above

              This reads to me of colorful, imaginative, and (Parkinsonspoet said it best) vibrant poetry!

                  RLW - Colorful, imaginative and vibrant - The last ingredients I had left in the kitchen to add to this work and for which I constantly stirred and re-stirred to get right. Now I'm kinda glad I did. Mighty proud your "next stop" was right here in the Earth zone where it's easy to have a read. Thanks RLW for enjoying. Namyh
