Image result for beautiful night sky showing planets

I look at shining stars in cobalt sky with just one wish to make on only one of billions of them in this Galaxy where we're just one small planet with a sun! And as I gaze, my mind is taking flight: Beyond the moon and through the milky way, we’re holding hands and soaring through a night of fantasy on beautiful display! We fly past Jupiter’s four rings of dust, then far away to Pluto. Yes, we dare! We circle back. How cold Mars is. We must warm up near Venus. Is Love’s goddess there? It matters not; my heart is ruled by YOU, and in this sky of night, dreams can come true! May 7, 2017 for Shadow Hamilton's The Night Sky Sonnets Only Contest A sonnet using the following required words: Shin(e)ing, Moon, Star/s, Planet, Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Pluto and the Milky Way

Andrea, this is art, fantasy, romance, science fiction, and poetry wrapped up in one. I can see why this is one of your favorites. I love the mention of Love's goddess as you approach Venus. A fav. Hugs ~ John

Hi Andrea, a wonderful Sonnet you do create with your words. You take us on a journey through the heavens with the most gentle words to shape your image on the canvas of the mind. Yes, in the night sky dreams do come true. I know that for a fact. It is a wonderful pleasure to be reading your excellent poetry once more Andrea. With such gentle ease your words do bring the night's sky right before us and we bathe in its wonder. This is a 7 and a fave. Good luck in the contest. Hugs....Mike. XX
