Our Runaway Cosmos

Dark energy, dark matter
bright stars–just a smatter
Universe expanding
beyond understanding

Other multiverses
dimensions reverses
concepts we once held true
now a new point of view.

Beyond understanding
universe expanding
bright stars– just a smatter
dark energy, dark matter

So little light. So much dark. All sparkles and darkles.

My Thanks to Linda Varsell Smith for her contributions above.

My example

Don’t Mock Any of Those Gods (Form: Rhymethor)

In case my words aren’t clear
there’s repetition here.
There’ve been gods by the bunch
by vision, plan and hunch.

I need no fables wrought
from whole cloth and then taught
to children who believe 
most all that they receive.

By vision, plan and hunch
there’ve been gods by the bunch
there’s repetition here
in case my words aren’t clear.

It works. A god’s an extra step. I’ll still be good.
