    dotsDid I lay in the regolithdots
    -------------------------------------------


    One-sixth of its weight,
    my heavy heart soars,
    roaming your mares
    and basaltic shores.

    But on earth you're a dream;
    are my prints in your dust?
    Did I lay in the regolith,
    did I do what I must?

    I will charter a ship,
    that I may soon return,
    and give in to your stillness
    while below the tides turn.

      I laid that sucubus in the regolith too. How I love my solar system.

      Well I had to look up regolith --really nice word but I hadn't a clue what it was (Geology 101 is a dim distant memory...)
    I am right away caught up in the old 'lay' 'lie' issue with the title and I so want to see "Did I lie in the regolith?" or "Have I lain in the regolith?" but we won't quibble about that now but in case you're interested here's a handy link I find most useful when in doubt: http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/lay-versus-lie?page=1

    I just want to get one other thing out of the way and that's that I think that "into" should be written 'in to' in this instance=and give in to your stillness....

    but now my nit-picking is finished and I would like to say I really like your poem an awful lot and would like to add it to my favorites.

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
