it was almost morning,

half moon and venus were

still hanging at the star bar

watching the world turn.

“earth, ain’t she a beauty?!”

half moon commented.

“she really is, considering

her age,” venus had to agree.


“she’s weathered many storms

in her years…whatcha think

about this global warming?”

“i’m not convinced, seems

earth’s weather has always

been a bit unpredictable…

(sigh) i’m not sure people

are as wise and powerful

as they imagine they are.”


half moon chuckles, “well,

looks like sun’s gonna close

this place down…alright

if i walk you home?”

    I tend to agree with your perception on this one! The answer is in the moon and stars! Only time will tell!

    This was whimsical and clever Lynn. The vehicle of light conversation can be effective in presenting a point of view regarding something as heavy as climate change. For example: β€œnot sure people are as wise and powerful as they imagine they are.” I would continue: ”especially those ignoring the science.”

    I love the conversational form of this piece. Venus may have a cosmic view of things, but too many nay-sayers on global warming are putting heads in the sand.

    An imaginative poem! Funny and yet, not funny
