Reaching for the moon, or: One giant step

A limerick

Ruled by hunger, the glutton was hasty,
Though the blackberry moon sure looked tasty!
He reached- but grabbed only air,
For rising up out of his chair
Left the fat man panting, sweaty, and pasty.

d’Verse poetics: Mooning around

At d’Verse, writers were encouraged to select one of the following names for the October moon and include it in a poem:

  • Travellerโ€™s
  • Blackberry
  • Gopher Looks Back
  • Hunterโ€™s
  • Blood
  • Seed Fall
  • In Ivy
  • Kindly

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)
