Sour Grapes

sour grapes

hanging pride
wind riding
critical mode

itching irritation
resolute argumentivness
hungry to be heard

affectatious deniability
dissolved desire
instantaneous rebirth

Astrophotographer Seeks Stellar Bodies


The Beginning Is Near

Astrophotographer Seeks Stellar Bodies

bodies to the astrophotographer
might make you crazy
but makes him slightly more sane

an invincible universe
powered by amoeboid quanta
a challenge to undo

space from the wall of death
seen through cadaverous eyes
and high nose to sniff out subtitles

he looks out for his chances
on that carousel ride to nowhere
confusing painted animals and gods

some seek mountains to climb
others pursue galaxies to conquer
they run rings around the planets

they turn on the metaphysical countertop
clearly, effectively, always sustainably
communication tries, people don’t succeed

Inkpot


Inkpot

Inkpot

in the pink inkpot
she opted not to drop
the pen tip to the top
instead, pointed
a pin into a pint
of knotted pinto beans
calculating pi ’til
the poi get eaten by the pit
and the silly pig snorts “oink”
while nipped during a deep kip

What I did to write this was go to         –  Scrabble Word Finder  Where they had a list of the anagrammed words made of Inkpot, and I just messed with the words to get this silly poem.

Lunatics


Alice in Wonderland by YukiValentine

Lunatics

a grin without a cat
is not a cat without a grin
in a world without sadness
where colors rule and
you care not
where I go while
I care much
to detain you
for your knowledge
binds me to this
upsidedown world
you are everywhere and
there is anywhere
you find cheeses
shaped like faces
and then i’m
suddenly called mad
by mates who
regularly escape
from the local
lunatic asylum
though they should be
sitting in the lounge
solving riddles and puzzles
playing checkers and bridge
on a competitive level
throwing red colored
jello into each other’s
grizzeled hair
intimidating the
sassy unfortunate inmates
who cannot wait
their turns on
the croquet field
and then slam balls
into each others heads
with confusing fury
and no account
for the proper
rules of safety
eating wild mushrooms
falling out of
an orange sapped tree
right onto my head
as i manage to hold
onto the tail
of my everpresent
cheerful mentor

gathering flowers for mom
cease at sudden honks
to follow a pair of geese

Coexist Sticker


Coexist Sticker

This sticker’s on an automobile.
It has a dream that’s unattainable.
Yes, it’s a very vain appeal.

Who’s out there seeking for an ideal,
when gods are unexplainable?
That sticker on any automobile

is a sarcastic way to conceal
a peace that is not sustainable.
I tell you, it’s a vain appeal.

The concept has a tendency to reel
you in. You think it is explainable?
The sticker found on some automobile

attracts attention with its pretty teal
color. But it’s not obtainable.
Coexistence is nothing but ordeal.

Don’t put away your sword of steel.
Soldiers, you are strong and trainable.
All those stickers on a junked automobile
are nothing but some vain appeal.

C is for CATS !

I kinda chose to put up my cynical view of how people of diverse religions can’t really love one another.
For those who don’t recognize this, it’s a villanelle.

Sonnet XXIV


Rare Green Flash From the Moon

Sonnet XXIV

Light from the moon hits Earth’s dense atmosphere
in the low opaque areas that are wet.
Then the apparent lunar photosphere
emits green light as Luna starts to set.
The grey moon seems orange in the dark sky,
then a rare flash appears out of nowhere,
as a giant prism paints verdant die
and a blazing mirage seems to hang there.
Lunar soil releases ionic
streams as it is hit by the solar winds.
Then it wears a crown that seems demonic
’til the moon in the sky sets and rescinds.
The air helps bend light into frequencies
like weaving bright threads of embroideries.

**********************

I just found out about this phenomenon today on the New Scientist page . Then I wrote this sonnet.

Digg Newsrooms also has some interesting comments.
