Sam Adams
Was an ecologist
With the Cosmos Institute

He was studying the decline
Of ancient civilizations
In North America

And concluded that
Humanity would soon face
A world in which its existence
Is doomed

As nature will no longer
Support such a large civilization
As climate change leads
To a mega drought

In the western parts
Of North America
And China and India
As well.

It would be
The end of the world.

Prompt The intersection of nature and civilization…

The future is coming and I can’t Wait for NaPoWriMo

Robots take over

Thinking about the future
I am excited

So many amazing things
Are about to happen
Dream and thought recording devices
Internet implants

Human-robot slaves
Self-driving vehicles
True AI Systems

Time Travel
Teleportation

Cloning
Growing new bodies
Life extension leading
To almost immortality

Lunar and Martian colonies
Development of space travel
Meeting alien civilizations

The future is coming
And I can’t wait

I want a robot slave
Maybe even a robot lover
And a new body

And I want to see Mars
And meet space aliens

And now for our (optional) prompt! Today, in honor of the potential luckiness of the number 13, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that, like the example poem here, joyfully states that “Everything is Going to Be Amazing.” Sometimes, good fortune can seem impossibly distant, but even if you can’t drum up the enthusiasm to write yourself a riotous pep talk, perhaps you can muse on the possibility of good things coming down the track. As they say, “the sun will come up tomorrow,” and if nothing else, this world offers us the persistent possibility of surprise.

Covid Life PSH

covid virus
covid virus

Ever since COVID hit
I have been laying low
Not going out much

Not meeting friends
But doing weekly zoom
With my best friends
That has kept me sane

Been doing a lot of writing
Lots of COVID poems
Featuring General Corona
And his COVID bot army

General Corona
Appeared to me
in a dream.

I fell asleep after watching
The former guy goes on and on about
Fighting a war against an invisible army.

And thought well
Every army
needs a general.

General corona appeared
In my dream
A tall black man
Dressed in a black general’s uniform
Riding the black horse of revelations.

With an army of imperial storm troopers
In black uniforms
Marching shooting ray guns
Filled with the virus
At everyone they encounter.

That is how
I coped with the COVID
pandemic lockdown,

This poetry writing prompt submitted by Gary Grossman:

We’re all tired of COVID but it is good fodder for poetry. Write a poem about how your life changed specifically during the pandemic. Did you exercise more, did you burn incense more, and did you read books that had been sitting in a pile for years? Focus on describing your mental state and how that translated into your physical state. Did your muscles ache from walking, what was the smell of the hand cream you used to soothe your skin? Did your partner participate with you?

If you write a poem from this prompt, post it as a comment underneath the prompt in the Poetry Super Highway Facebook Group.

The Final Getaway Local Gem

Sam Adams, an old man
Recently returning to his hometown,
Was walking in the Berkeley Hills.
Ended up at Tilden Park

Where he had been hiking
Ever since he was a child.

He was hoping to getaway.
From all the turmoil,
The dismal news of the day
The constant chattering on his TV.

He came upon an unusual sight
An open door in the air
With a note
Narnia is calling you.

He laughed
Recalling his favorite
Childhood stories
The Chronicles of Narnia.

He always wondered
If the stories were true
As he always felt
The stories were.

He jumped through the portal
Sam Adams disappearance
Remained a mystery.

He left behind a tangled mess
Millions of dollars in assets
Scattered across several states.

.The End
