In response to Poetry 101 Rehab Prompt “Revolution“
Hosted by Andy Townend
Around the Sun, its revolution bound by gravity, the Earth’s confined to pointless repetitions of its path. No new interests but the Sun’s spots, coronal loops along magnetic field lines and mass ejections in its outer atmosphere.
Perhaps some meteors or comets, much smaller, might avoid the boring revolutional repeats, passing seeming randomly between the staggered planets’ revolutions midst asteroidal ellipses, just might be tempted closer to Earth’s orbit, pulled in closer to the atmosphere to burn and shine.
near Earth asteroids—
almost misses, one and all
or . . . target practice.
