Three glowing globes of red hued fire
Drop
One
By
One
Below the silhouetted
Angry
Pointed peaks
Of the Prantasian mountain range.

As diminishing dashes of light
Retreat
Out
Of
Sight
Our breath crystallizes
Frozen
In short gasps
As darkness blankets our farewell.

My love’s two shinning faces
Dim
In
Quiet
Expectation
Waiting for the string of seven pearls
Moons
That will
Illuminate our final kiss.

My journey waits like an executioner
Anticipating
Dawn’s
Explosive
Sunrises
When my Star-traveler
Nourishment
Launches me into the next century
In a blink of my aqua eyes.

Streaming showers of shooting stars
Streak
Unshackled
Silently
Screaming
The brevity of existence
Signaling
Nothing survives
In its present state.

Our lips quiver in expected embrace
Drawing
Closer
Touching
Exchanging
Our last expression of passion
Whispering
I’ll love
Forever, wherever, always.


My Helen will be in Heaven when I come back
Redeemed
Restored
Released
Ransomed
Waiting for my delayed return
Remembering
Our oneness
In a world we cannot see.

Traveling on tides of light’s speed
Time
Tamed
Stands
Still
My eyes will not age
Searching
For food
In a distant universe.

Pain and duty duel for dominance
Wrestling
Fighting
Debating
Warring
Deep in my embattled soul
Uncompromising
Death will determine
My bloody battle within.

But, my love’s hands caress my faces
Soothing
Hostilities
Softly
Speaking
“I will not die alone
Sweetheart
I have your love
And seed in my heart‘s womb.”


Strapped in my launch-seat I kiss
Memories
Scents
Tastes
Sounds
Of my love’s beauty
Spirit
As the power of duty prepares to
Rocket me to realms for our offspring’s future.

What a triple threat this is--Sci Fi, Romance and poetry. The descriptions were so powerful, this was enchanting, haunting, alluring, I really really enjoyed reading this, and will come back to it again!

Extremely unique and one of a kind. The format, the talent, this is just awesome! My favorite lines were: Remembering
Our oneness
In a world we cannot see.
Something very moving about that. I have no suggestions for improvement, just congratulations for writing your heart out! ^_^

Wow. I clicked on the link and said, "Oh. A poem." I didn't mean to read it, but the format caught my eye and then I thought, "Well, maybe I'll just read the first verse..." You sucked me in from there. Keep up the great job!
Joanne Sher 05/21/07
LOVE the format, and the alliteration. I think you are a force to deal with - in sci-fi AND poetry! So visual and tactile. Excellent.
Jan Ackerson 05/21/07
What a marvelous entry! I hope it does very well; it was written by a master poet and imagineer.
Benjamin Graber05/22/07
Excellent poem combining sci-fi with poetical imagery. Great job!
Marty Wellington 05/23/07
Well done. The imagery and structure are very powerful elements of this piece. An enjoyable and haunting piece.
Rita Garcia05/23/07
Picture perfect poetry!
