The Spaceship and the Amulet Marrakesh Photo Hugh Ardoin

The pale and faded runes are written besides the wall

The moving message the calligraphic gone graphic the sudden death

Scribbled on the far side of the artefacts of life

A spaceship ready to fly to heaven or just an amulet to hang around the moon’s neck

Seated or standing to attention a desperate last move to the great outer space standing arms stretched in a last and ultimate supplication 

The prayer rises the the ears of heaven, music or just a lame poem, but will they be heard?
