Get Listed with Kenia Cris

21 Feb

Kenia Cris has provided us a sci fi list of words from Philip Dick’s 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? for the Real Toads Wednesday Get Listed challenge.  I’m horribly late to the party.  I’m also sharing at the Open Link for Real Toads and d’Verse Pub.


Ever present cosmic dust
contained future possibilities
a new chance to soar
through the roof and land
on the third golden moon,
but ever present human frailties
reveal a collection of doubt, and
cardboard stones can shatter
a newly crestfallen house
where the dismal result makes
another semi-ruined fragile soul.

    It’s sad the way we let our cardboard houses get the better of us.

    ever present human frailties
    reveal a collection of doubt…

    And isn’t it the truth about us human beings? This is really beautiful, I’m glad you extended a poem to the prompt, thanks for taking the time and patience and inspiration.

    Take care and keep smiling.❤

    so many cardboard houses… this is beautiful, sad with a slim chance for hope… well done.

    One of my favorites of yours instantly, Teresa. This is deftly written, and the imagery really speaks–great use of the list words, so as to make them invisible. Loved it.

    I love the third golden moon and the cardboard stones. Very clever.

    Semi-ruined gives me hope. The beginning had me flying, the ending, not so much.

    A wee bit of The Wizard of Oz in this one!

    Gorgeous elements dance in your words! There is much wonder to behold…I loved this one! I know a few souls which descend on the fragile-I am an Idea Fairy after all…
    I could feel my emotions be tugged reading your words~

    so many fragile souls out there…that can be knocked over in such a weak wind…or a cardboard rock…it wont take much…and often it i all it takes…sad, you know.

    That doubt always shatter a house or soul ~ Enjoyed the weaving of words here Teresa ~

    Just loved this–and was thinking that sci fi was not conducive to poetry–well I guess i was wrong

    another semi-ruined fragile soul….. there are way too many of them out there… and doubt has so much potential to destroy us from the inside out..
