diamond ring
and keepsake box
a silver key
that time unlocks
these artifacts
like lunar rocks
are held inside
an equinox

of day and night
and night and day
while passing through
the milky way
a journey now
that some might say
of stars allowed
to drift and stray

like comet trails
and comet dust
and all the stars
that we discussed
with telescopes
I think we must
survey with maps
each point of trust

and orbit now
this earthly view
of emerald greens
and azure blues
that heaven sends
of suns and moons
that lesser gods
allow of you

Moving in a binary orbit,
the gravitational pull
of two celestial bodies
brings a moment
of cosmic fusion
as two stars collide...
like you and me,
lighting up the night.
