SHENKUU LUNAR FESTIVAL SPECIAL

Lunar Festival
by Our_teardrops

Fireworks ignite the Shenkuu sky,
Bursting with splendid lights.
Lion dances parade the streets,
Flying Crimson Cyodrake Kites.

Hopes for great fortune and wealth,
Blessed by colors of lucky red,
Decorate the lively lunar festive 
With lunar lanterns above our heads.

Dumplings, pineapple, and oranges,
Golden Tangerines and exotic food. 
Plus, Snorkles gathered by Orrin 
For wishes of future luck and good.

The vivid night illuminated by firecrackers,
To be enjoyed with families and friends. 
As moonlight glistens over mountaintops, 
Soon, Shenkuu Lunar Festival Shall end.

A Lunar New Year Celebration
by Kanpai

The skies of Shenkuu glow tonight
As fireworks are shot.
Colorful sparks light up the sky
Brighter than a thousand watts.

The streets of Shenkuu boom tonight,
Drum beats fill the ear.
The booming sound engulfs the town
As a parade marches near.

The restaurants of Shenkuu cook tonight,
A brilliant aroma fills the place.
Sushi, dumplings, Mochi Soup,
In the stomach, there's no space.

The stores of Shenkuu close tonight,
It's a holiday for all.
The time to celebrate a new year
As the old one falls.

The land of Shenkuu cheers tonight,
Reflecting on their pasts.
They ring in the Lunar New Year
And many memories to last.

The Wise Old Gnorbu
by Fleurdust

Climb a thousand narrow steps
And duck beneath a canopy
To find the Wise Old Gnorbu --
Come in and share some tea!

His eyes are bright and friendly,
And he welcomes you to his home
Then leads you into the temple hall
Beneath a sheer glass dome.

"Look up," he says and smiles.
You do and can't help but gasp.
The sky above is teeming
With a billion tiny stars.

Shooting novas spin and dance
Around the giant silver moon.
Constellations vie for their place
As the galaxy wanders on.

The Gnorbu takes another cup
Of cherry-scented tea.
"Learn the secrets of the universe --
Tarry awhile with me!"

He shows you maps and star-charts
To track the cosmic paths.
Your past and future can be found
If you've a head for maths.

The night is almost over,
The sun begins to rise.
The Gnorbu sends you on your way
With a fresh pack of supplies.

Just before you start back down
The mountain's lonely road,
He calls, "Remember this humble temple
And all that you've been shown!

Recall the ways of star-gazing
When life's journey takes you far!
If you are lost, without a hope:
Look up and ask the stars!"

Spirit Of The Lunar Temple
by Botamius

Seek for me the moon --
temple of the heavens, rest
your eyes upon me.

Wise Gnorbu, inside,
challenges starry pupils --
Kreludor, the prize.

Gift is not the sky,
a single map, or many,
can break away light.

All this in Shenkuu
upon it upon us climb --
the fog rolls in, up

Up into something
like lotus petals curling,
hiding floating lakes

A mountain, a ghost --
beyond coasts calling, I hope
beyond most falling

A hint of quiet --
sketched origin of night light,
sketched soul within you.

The Lunar Temple
by Sweetiepie044044

Want to help an old Gnorbu?
I’ve got a challenge here for you.
Discover the phase of the moon,
Think carefully now and answer soon.

A wise and ancient Gnorbu I might be, 
But no answer will you get from me!
Why, yes, of course I know --
Asking you is just for show.

However, if you get it right,
A reward is here for your delight.
Answer wrong? Well, there’s something, too. 
Either way you get an item brand new.

"What is the purpose?" you may ask,
Other than to have a task.
Tracking Kreludor is the intent --
I doubt you understand what I meant.

A crescent, or a quarter, perhaps?
If you don’t conclude soon it will elapse.
I’ve given you all your clues -- 
Now it’s time for you to choose!
