Miranda On The Ecliptic

Miranda orbits along a path of time and ice Rotating Uranus almost in her retrograde near by Moves upside down while dancing with the stars On the ecliptic, by the equator they go on The belly of the Milky highway arises From our perspective everything is right An accretion disc forms flat against the black There is nothing wrong with that Miranda stands but as a dot, small, almost invisible Undetected by the naked eye As she meanders through the universe unlighted Scarred for life, etched out collisions with the night Carved rocks on surfaces for what it's worth Peculiar yet beautiful in the dark Held in line, perpendicular to the solar sinking plane In the grip of time, in the hold of Uranus's tidal forces Sidled in proximity to her companion built of ice and gas Life itself should be so large, to have a giant world with you Made of blue to go through life through Marching to the tune of equilibrium It is her game. It is her name, Miranda Anonymity https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miranda_(moon)#/media/File:PIA18185_Miranda's_Icy_Face.jpg
