unmistakable orbit haiku

Autumn dusk and Venus
takes the sky – lover planet –
bright, pure, quiet.


I believe it’s true
that certain bodies
are simply drawn

to one another –
just look at the miracle
of the moon

and earth,
locked in orbit,
and the moon

showing the same face
night after
night for billions

of years.  Oh,
what it would be
to bare

your face like that
and never
look away.
