The Olympic Moment in Poetry

A poet stands, proudly, on the planet, Mars,
Watching the timeless Earth spin and rotate no more.
Each of his poems dances on each of his pages,
Yearning to dazzle Emily Dickinson;
Each musical note echoes through darkness,
Triumphant over Beethoven’s third concerto;
Each vivid imagery, filled with fluorescent colors,
Excels Picasso’ paintings’ and lights up the cool night.
In the vortex of spring, his quill scintillates like an auburn star,
Awaiting the moment to gleam golden joy.
Somewhere, in the vast universe, an orange flame blazes, endlessly
