Jupiter's Poem


Wrote his first stanza
Cruising through
The happy jungle of stars
In the dawn of time


He breathed
New life into the galaxy by
Feeding and grooming the
Budding stars in the Milky Way
Sprouting the rainbow


Then, he undertook a
New cosmic adventure along the
River of dreams…
Nourishing the red dwarf with
Sweet memories of his first love


He found his voice
In the years of the great
Cosmic upheaval
His first offering was a thriller
A golden poem with attitude


Jupiter’s poem was
Born in pain & deprivation…
Each stanza an
Embodiment of perfection
Over-flowing with love divine


After many years
Of grief and solitude, he
Embraced the new light
With great passion, as the wild
Rose continued to bloom
