Friday 55-Celestial Romance

 Old man Moon
kept watch over
the lovely Venus
as she roamed
the universe.

He waited 
for her,
broke into a grin
when she wandered
close enough.

She brightened
when she saw him,
lingered a bit,
settled in close
to share secrets in the dark.

Together 
they winked knowingly
at Earthbound souls
who spied them.

It was an earlier night this week when I saw the conjunction and grinned.

You know, the first time I met my birth-mother, Venus and the moon were in conjunction. . .

"He broke into a grin and she brightened..." - the words are so appropriate Michelle. An excellent little poem - Dave

Moannie said...

Lovely. Haven't seen the moon clearly for months -the same cloud cover that continues to hide the sun just sits there.

Austin said...

Great pic, well done!

Rockets and Wings is my 55 this week.

What lovely lines to go with your photo. Like Moannie, it's been to cloudy to notice the beauty here. Thanks for sharing your view though.

And what did Venus see and do? I guess only the moon knows for sure!

WONDERFUL 55, Lime!!
