Venus & Jupiter

March 28, 2012

Good evening sky with its
Less than crescent moon.
Just above a steady star hovers
Glows from the inside out
Like the first clear plastic peg
That pierced your charcoal Lite Brite sky
So many years ago.
Slightly south of lunar
Another star ablaze with
An internal pyre
Of unknown origin.
Only later
In the dusty, mysterious
Morning mist
Do you discover
The stars were
Venus and Jupiter
Not celestial bodies at all
But gods of love and sex
Sky and thunder
Vying for the attention
Of the soundless spring moon.
