Drops of Neptune - 'A Celestial High'


Did you lose yourself out there,
As you hung on to a journeyman, a king-size voyager,
Passing horizons, past the serenading blue;
In a deluge of tears from the aquamarine mass;
Drops of Neptune and an eerie cry from a space banshee;
Plodding towards a destiny, in to the dark twilight of the Oort's cloud;
Darker than nimbus, in a deluge of asteroids;
As orbitals gestured from all around;
In their ecliptic trajectories, Kepler's ghosts,
Even the shadows of moons, titans of the Milky Way;
All in a huddle, to bring you down to earth;
Away from the ominous clutches of a madman;
As you were cidal, in those ominous clouds;
Beckoning from above, amidst the white dwarfs and the jovian giants
As the shooting stars gestured your travels,
From the oceans of Neptune's tears;
As they ransacked your tranquil getaway to the heavens;
Celestial cocaine and heavenly heroin;
In your voyage with your beloved, the madman, the king,
Your celestial time bomb, in your lofty high,
With his highness, narcotics.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
