Paint a smile on the moon

     Flash your eyes to make it swoon

          Dip your toes in stardust rare

               Aurora highlights streak your hair



Blow a kiss to flout the sun

     Admonishing its time is done

          Whisper in the heaven's ear

               Close the lights and draw it near



Repose your form upon the stars

     Lustrous arms for tempting Mars

          Seduce Lord Jupiter and sway

               Wrapped only in the Milky Way



Splash meteors across the sky

     To catch your lover Neptune's eye

          Entwine with loins the planets all

               Made hostage to your beck and call



Kiss deep the void and let it be

     A promise to the galaxy

          That all your wiles you'll disperse

               To make love to ... the Universe.



( For Aphrodite / Venus )

Thank you so very much, Line, I greatly appreciate the kind words! Very pleased you enjoyed this one, as it is very special to me - at the time I wrote it I did so as to represent the actual position in the sky of the stars and planets I mentioned ... plus it was one of those that just flowed, and something I shared with my kids. Blessings!

Thank you so kindly, Andrea, so pleased that you liked this ... it is very special to me. And congrats to you as well - seems you are something of a tour de force around here, and I very much enjoy what I've read of your work, though I need to read MORE! Hopefully I will be able to do so and get more involved here as my schedule eases a bit this summer. Thanks again! :-)

Thanks so much, Doug - it even related directly (at the time written) to the position in the sky of most of the celestial objects mentioned ... I had a lot of fun with that! :-)
