Moonlit dreamscape

A little whimsy I wrote for the Earth Hour Astronomy and Poetry gig. Hope you remembered to turn your lights off.

 

In the moonlit dreamscape
Saturn jumps through rings
while Pluto weeps

 

In the moonlit dreamscape
Mercury darts between the trees
teasing Uranus remorselessly

 

In the moonlit dreamscape
with kissing pout Venus
demands Jupiter’s moons

 

In the moonlit dreamscape
Neptune pitches water
on Mars’  toy soldiers

 

In the moonlit dreamscape
Earth sighs, and with beseeching gaze
asks us to turn the lights off
