Stars like Dice
She picked the stars up like dice
and threw them once and threw twice.
Till they were scattered in the sky,
an amazing mix to beguile the eye.
Then colouring a deep indigo
she made a stunning backdrop for the stars to show.
There was such a stunning light
and she decided to call it night.
She spread her arms out far and wide
and defied any soul to reach the other side.
All day she played at this
and every now an then she would ignite a sun with just a kiss.
Galaxy after Galaxy she set out within her being.
She was unsure if she was travelling to, or fleeing.
Then she had a mad idea, made a planet green and blue
and planted the seed for me and you.
Eventually she got bored and looked for some new employment
she made oceans and land and all of that was for our enjoyment.
But as she was growing tired
and so she made something less inspired.
From within her tired mind
she created mankind.

ONCE UPON A MOON
Look at me sitting on the moon
watching stars as they past me, whizz and zoom.
I spent all day making more
you can count and keep a score.
I have attached by ribbons bright to my moon the most bright
so you can sit and view them tonight.
I have searched the the skies at night
for new stars out on their maiden flight.
I can see stories in this universe
so many things which cannot be reversed.
Rushing fast present, future past
the truths the lies the dye is cast.
Stars are golden, stars are bright
stars dance unendingly all through their life.
They see things we never dreamed of colours, vistas of dust
over millennia they have form a planets’ crust.
Stars are sparkly stars are light ….
if only we would treat them right
FAREWELL TO EARTH
(A Sonnet to a dying Earth. Eight lines A,B. A,B A,B A,B )
It was hard to leave, hard to understand
Some tried hard to save our Earth
The others ignored the facts out of hand.
Where once was green and plenty all was now dust and dearth.
I was not alone there were others of us there
Set upon this lonely moon
Destined , now to travel who knows where.
Afraid and frightened I sat marooned
Ambient space music. Travel to another planet with only your headphones

They told me the job was easy, the told me my days would be free
but the fact that it would take me eons to complete was the fact they kept from me.
They asked if I was serious, they inquired if I was trustworthy, hard working and able to work alone.
They forgot to tell me my eyes would be completely boggled every morning when I got home.
They gave me a computer a pad and pen
and they threw in broadband but after that I did not hear from them again!
Their medical division offered me some dark glasses but I think that was a joke.
The scientific section got me a telescope. I was all excited with this job and so full of hope.
They showed me my work station, it was in a field
they bought me in a ergonomic chair, across the grass it wheeled.
I was allowed two tea breaks and a 30 minute lunch
but definitely no coffee at my desk, and they threw in some coloured bands so I could keep my pens all in a bunch.
They gave me an umbrella in case there should be rain
and a little woolly hat just to protect my brain.
So now I was ready excited and inspired
I was determined to make them glad that it was me they had hired.
Now I hear your brain ticking I know what you want to know
what is it that my job is and why does it please me so.
I have to count the stars all of them up in the skies.
Which means I shall be busy every night with stars before my eyes!
ps And now they have me working and my contract has begun
They have moved the blooming goal posts and they want me to also map the Sun??!!
