The Starlight SciFaiku Review, Summer 2021 (issue #1)

Page 29 — Katerina Bruno

The creatures wriggle

Cantaloupe terrain
Triton’s dirty-water ice
The creatures wriggle

Tethered to Tethys
Gravitational hiccup
A slow slide upwards

The wonder has waned
Survival is a deep grind
Deimos is brutal

Globules of light
Hang in antigravity
From the spilled water

Spacecraft thunder
Echoing through deepest chambers
Alien memories
