August 6 Writing Prompt

Jupiter Glow is the prompt provided by Putting My Feet in the Dirt

After 10 minutes of free writing, I extracted this poem.

I’ve seen the planet Jupiter in books

It’s the fifth one from the sun

It’s over there by Mars, just before Saturn

It’s the biggest one

The Romans named it after a god

The sky god, the king of gods

Same as Zeus

The Greeks called him Zeus

That was a long time ago

Tonight, if you know where to look

You might see Jupiter’s Glow
