Tales of Zodiac — Gemini & Libra

Is she the darkest light?
Once a saintly warrior
Fighting the righteous plight
When war and invasion began
She fought with all her might
But in time she saw the truth beneath
Army generals bereft of justice
Sent shivers down her spine

Fighting a war that could never win
She forsaken her saintly title
Knowing what she has always been
She succeeded the Court of Libra
Watching stars under dusty wind
Guiding the path true and wise
Balancing the perfect pair of scales
Upholding judgment of justice impartial
And wisdom in her sword of shining sheen

-Pollux & Castor-
Is he the lightest dark?
The most powerful dual swordsman
Fierce and formidable in his battles
Yet kind and gentle towards his companions
He knew a different soul resided
Within him is another man
Whom he called brother but departed
To him he surrendered his right hand

In the war that ravaged
He finally met his match
On the verge of death he couraged
Enacted a spell binding him and he
Releasing Castor’s soul he raged
Holding two swords with his brother
They defeated the unjust soldier
Inheriting the splendid Court of Gemini

-Luna and Pollux-
Residing in the constellation
Luna glimmered in eternal silver
Pollux glistened in glorious violet
In the luminescence of their star lights
Their stories are to be told


Gemini of Recall Castor & Pollux and Libra of Justice Luna


This is a prequel poetry to the fan-fiction I’m going to write about these 2 characters in a mobile game I’m playing — Tower of Saviors. It’s a combination of original and found poetry 🙂

Also in response to this week’s Stellar and Lunar Challenge (3 Dec) with prompt Luminescence.

Lost Kite

As I will be writing all sorts of poetry this week and next for Writing 201, most of my challenges will also be done in poetic form 🙂

Lost Kite

No more string attached,
Its adventure taking flight,
Goodbye broken kite.

A haiku in response to this week’s Stellar and Lunar Challenge (Oct 1) with the prompt Flight.

Temperamental Magic


Peeking behind clouds,
Welcoming sun glowed warmly,
Sunlight, shining rays.


Lake shore lines lower,
Remaining water, ebbing,
Draught caught on early.


Quiet tower loomed,
Clock hands stopped ages ago,
Under gloomy day.


Sky, raindrops falling,
Drip, slick, slide, pelting away,
Down into puddle.


Time passed silently,
Eternal changing weather,

My first attempt on Haiku, I’ve read about the syllable rules and thought of painting the weather with words. Any critiques/comments/feedback is very appreciated, please let me know what you think 🙂

In response to this week’s Stellar and Lunar Challenge Roundup #17 (Sep 10) with the prompt: Magic. This week we come back from space travel to appreciate the uniqueness of our planet Earth ❤

Stellar and Lunar Challenge is hosted by Sarah once a week every Thursday on her blog tuckedintoacorner.

This Is Why I Would Become A Space Traveller

Would I travel to space? Oh yes I would.

The outer space has always, and will always be fascinating to me. If only we could travel through the universe like how we travel to another country.

Imagine the world we would live in if space travel is possible. Here are a few scenarios I could think of based on lots of sci-fi movies watched since childhood:

The Lonely Satellite

Eternal entity
Never looked back
Drifting endlessly
Up and away from home
Ran out of course
Alone floating in space
No one came finding
Cold hot it does not feel
Enduring time, the lonely satellite

My first attempt at acrostic poem is inspired by this week’s Stellar and Lunar Challenge Roundup #14 (Aug 20) themed Enduring/Endurance.

Every Year

Every year
They silently observe
Tracing stellar movement

Every year
Comet comes close
To some distant planet

Every year
Blazing the sky
Devastated impact

Every year
Life forms fear
Destructible comet

Every year
They move in
Colonizing the aftermath

Every year
The cycle repeats
They are populating

My first free verse poetry and is inspired by this week’s Stellar and Lunar Challenge Roundup #12 (Aug 6) themed impact. I’m still in the mood of sci-fi after reading Ender’s Game ^^’
