Hi, it’s William Wolfsworth, poetry correspondent at the Greenygrey. I went to watch Gravity in 3D yesterday, and was inspired to write this poem about the first movie I’ve watched in the cinema this year. It doesn’t contain any spoilers.
William Wordsworth Poetry of Gravity
I think my human inspiration William Wordsworth would have liked it.
I bet the old Romantic would have been impressed by how far humanity has travelled; and marvelled at the images of Earth from space.
I think he’d also have liked the way the movie showed our planet’s beauty, and the value of its life and natural resources.
The poem rhymes AABBA, which spells ABBA after an additional A.
Gravity 3D Poetry
for its effects
However, there is narrative
driving the speculative
orbiting Earth odyssey
reminding reasons to live.
Planet’s land, oceans and rivers
sparkling in sunrise shimmers
living memories of those departed
human chuckles, canine howls
sound heart desire, awakens believers.
