Mothra (Poems)

Rainbow wings
Tokyo moon

Paper lantern attraction
garden cannot accommodate
eighty metre lepidopteran

Mosura freight express
mach three speed
windows shatter

All the chrysanthemums in Tokyo
unable to sate
Mothra’s hunger

Reems of silk
dying mother
fighting off
Gojira’s advance

Reflective scales
tumble from
rainbow wings
powder blue beam
scattered through
azure skies

Moths night tide flight
cars and trucks
sent spinning

a gargantuan moth
who knew?

Rollin’ on
rainbow reverberations
Mosura freight express

Tokyo Tower
seen as a
giant candle

Ensnared in
silken trap
halted by
Mothra’s legacy

Leaves scattered
Mosura freight express
takes a scenic detour

Mosura dynesty

Radioactive dinosaur
battling a
Incorporeal Moth.
Such things
decide this
worlds fate

Infant island’s
flying home
golden seas

    I was just thinking that Mothra should be honored in a poem. And then I saw this.

    Wow! I had to go to the dictionary and wikipedia for this, but now knowledgable on Mothra/Mosura and other lepidopterous references. This is such a colorful, fantastical poem. Love the irony/metaphor of

    “Radioactive dinosaur
    battling a
    Incorporeal Moth.
    Such things
    decide this
    worlds fate”

    Great work!

    Giant lepidoptera aka Mothra vs. a nuclear radiated mutated therapod aka Godzilla?
    Poetic description very well done…

    Nice. I agree with the post above. I like reading down the left, center and right “columns”. Gives the whole poem several different feels. Also…….Mothra!!!!

    • Thank you for the comment.

      Actually I meant for this to be seperate poems but honestly, you can read it how you want. I appreciate the different views. Nice to see different ways of reading things.

      And yes, Mothra is awesome.
