Call To Mars

Saving credits for a trip to the stars,
A cave at Alba Mons volcano:
Ancient secrets, flowing bars;
Greenish women, so Bueno;
Artifacts, old, Martian,
Calling me to hug.
Beetle auction.
Red dust bug.
Big brained,
Life,
Love.
Misplaced
Mementos
Belonging to
Polka-dot fellows
Sexy ladybugs knew.
A rust-colored threesome
In waters that ran chilled and new;
But, air-thinned with delirium,
And a dusty marriage Mars did eschew.

Tom, great imagery in this and I like the rhyme! I agree that you shouldn't have cut it down for the contest. It's great the way it is! Blessings!

Interesting. You never know what could be out there. Some pretty deep oceans in space. It works for me. You play with words well my friend. I think I have a match in you. Look me up in the soup. David in NZ (Kiwi land). If you see a Kangaroo you are wrong side of the ditch.
