DAY #34 - BY JUPITER! The Last Planet is Open!

WHAT!?  Yes, it is true.  The doors to Jupiter have swung open (metaphorically).

The entry point is a huge maze that covers an area of some 60 meters.  Inside it you can discover different bits and symbols from the other six planets, which can be fun.  Your objective, however, is to find The Stair of the Gods, and climb it.  It is treacherous, so step with care!  At the top you will find a party!  That's right, Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity, has food and dance waiting for you in his Grand Olympian Ballroom.

Before Jupiter even opened, Mags took a swing at a planetary poem that is a great way to welcome the Giant of the Gods into our stellar system on LEA 4.

A planetary poem
by MeteorMags

you make me laugh until we tumble
into this drift like asteroids
coaxed by gravity

to surround this jovial hydrogen bastard
who disturbs the belt with his frivolities
and storms

laughter heals and lifts us past the pain
your tears on my shoulder and fictions
we dream together

love me for an hour then leave
traces of your orbit and clues you give

to the sadness of the inner planets
where life only makes them realize
they’re small

i will never let them touch you
with telescopes and equations
I will erase their blackboards and crush their lenses

until all they know is mystery like a fool
i would keep you to myself
though your brightness burns for everyone

annihilation comes easily
rejuvenation takes more effort
or none at all

one word
one touch
will inspire
