UTOPIA ~ SONNET 2 ~ BRIAN & ANGELA

 

WE ARE STANDING LOOKING AWAY FROM YOU BECAUSE

APPEARANCE IS ALIEN BIG EYES & TRIANGULAR HEAD !

 

MY NAME IS BROS & MY WIFE IS AOS

We were both born in HIEROS which is 

A Large CITY of one hundred thousand

We restrict cities to that size ~ OK !

 

The Trios Day & Year is twice as long 

As on Earth. I was twelve when I married

AOS was ten ~ we now have two Children 

ALPHA (Boy) (4) also BETA (Girl) (3).

 

Developmentally Earthwise ~ 8 & 6 !

They start School @ 3 ~ remain up to 8

Their last year at School is vocational

Universities ~ Part-time or On-air.

 

Life on UTOPIA ~ is excellent 

Good climate ~ no stress or strife ~ PERFECTION !

 

Thanks for visiting UTOPIA ~ comments please ~ BRIAN & ANGELA

 

We were contacted by PLANET EARTH (three light years away)

20 Earth years ago (10 Trosian years).  It takes 3 E-years for a

radio message to reach  TRIOS and 3 E-years for the reply to

reach Earth. Now we send information each week to exchange

information on History ~ Science ~ Art ~ Music & Sociology ! 

I am a BIOCHEMIST & AOS is a BOTANIST.  I work in Education

and AOS in Research & Development. 75% of Trosians are

VEGETARIANS so PLANT PRODUCTION for FOOD is of paramount

importance. The 92 natural elements on TRIOS are the same as

on PLANET EARTH but so far we have only isolated 75 ! We do 

not have the technology to synthesise TRANSURANIC ELEMENTS

and we do not have NUCLEAR GENERATORS. We generate

our ELECTRICITY  using Wind ~ Hydro ~ Alturian (Solar) and

20% using fossil fuel  (coal ~ oil ~ gas). The Laws of Science

are the same as on EARTH. We have NOT developed Space 

Travel yet !  It would take an Earth Space Ship about 30 E-years

to reach TRIOS !  Every Blessing Love  BRIOS & AOS  ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿงก๐Ÿงก๐Ÿงก

    • BRIAN & ANGELA

      THANKS CRYSTAL ~ Pleased you liked it ! Angela & I are Scientists and therefor interested in SCIENCE FICTION ~ we decided to transport ourselves to another inhabited Planet in another Star System in the Milky Way Galaxy ~ The Planet TRIOS ~ AMEN Yours Brian ๐Ÿ˜Ž & Angela ๐Ÿงก

    • Michael Edwards

      You took me away beyond - great write.

      • BRIAN & ANGELA

        Thanks UNCLE MICHAEL ~ Pleased you like it ~ Angela & I both love SF and it is always exciting to write (easier in prose than verse !) it lifts one out of the BREXIT ZONE ~ BLESSINGS Brian ๐Ÿ˜Ž & Angela ๐Ÿงก

      • Tamara Beryl Latham - The Poet

        Unusual blank verse sonnet. I've not seen this form previously, but I like it.

        The subject would interest the scientific mind.

        The lines "Life on UTOPIA ~ is excellent
        Good climate ~ no stress or strife ~ PERFECTION !" is a bit of a stretch or wishful thinking. :)

        If you want to get into space travel you may want to research superconductors.

        Thanks for posting.

        • BRIAN & ANGELA

          Thanks TAMARA ~ There are specific Structures and Rhyme Patterns for Classical Poets. For me it is the LENGTH that is important so I rate any 14 Line poem as a Potential Sonnet. There are Rhyming Sonnets and Free Verse Sonnets (no Rhyme or Rhythm !). In a Blank Verse Sonnet there is no Rhyme but the Rhythm is provided by each line being co-syllabic. In the above example each line is ~ iambic pentameter ~ 10 syllables per line ! Read it out loud and you will see it has Rhythm & Flow. Pleased you enjoyed concept. Angela & I like our SF to complement Science Fact ~ Every Blessing BRIAN ๐Ÿ˜Ž & ANGELA ๐Ÿงก

          A fine write B&A. I'm just about to catch the No. 7 bus. I believe it goes to Utopia. It always returns empty though, as everyone stays there!

          Thanks UNCLE STEVE : Its the same with flights to NEW ZEALAND nobody ever wants to go home : me included ! Pleased you enjoyed the concept BRIAN & I both love SF and have reinvented ourselves as BROS & AOS on Planet TRIOS! Love & Blessings ANGELA ๐Ÿงก & BRIAN ๐Ÿ˜Ž

          Hello Brian and Angela,

          Hope you are both well?

          What an interesting and vivid poem.

          The state of the world at present is far from perfect and far removed from Utopia a lot of the time.

          Keeo writing
