Sci-fi world

To become a human

On a planet X, Martian girl- tourist, dressed in stardust and silk,
waits on a queue and speaks to her personal Moon.
“The hours on the waiting line are worth” – she says,
and step after step, to the emerald salesman she moves.
With the speed of the light it was supposed to be,
but alas, time froze, the orbits were on strike again.
She thought of astronauts, she prayed for iron rain,
she dreamed of umbrellas that will hide her antenna
and when she finally reached the counter,
her nikon eyes, her smile in innocent tungsten, crossing gigabites,
faced the solar robot, selling all kind of artificial goods:
“One ticket to the Earth please and advice how can I fit in a human outfit?

    My favorite line: “but alas, time froze, the orbits were on strike again.” This was so full of whimsy and I loved the tech jargon!! A case of the planet looking greener on the other side? lol :)

    Oooh fantastic, like a sci-fi version of the little mermaid. You really made me side with your heroine and feel her desire to be human. I also love your descriptions and images. I have to say, if I had a personal moon, I’m not sure I would want to leave Planet X.

    Sometimes I feel like a green lady from outer space. Blaga, this is fun and I love the photo too. Well done. I loved “her nikon eyes, her smile in innocent tungsten, crossing gigabites” – Clever! :-)

    Quiet at your end of the world. Hope you are just busy and nothing bad. Will email you later today on work on Egypt and other stuff.

    Have a pleasant evening. I hope you are not stuck somewhere because of the strikes.
