Post #26 of 26
It was about a year ago that Jupiter and the Moon were last dancing around each other in the sky and it inspired me to write the following little poem:
I wrote a poem about that about a year ago, actually.
[In reply to]
disc of fire,
in a hazy sky this night,
encircled by a wispy halo
of the palest blue,
you may be
but a satellite,
formed of rock and reflected light,
but you have captured the king of the gods
and made him yours tonight.

Also inspired somewhat by a nice photograph of the two, which I've paired with the poem here: http://cassander42.deviantart.com/art/nightfire-268198173
I must say I've been noticing them doing their dance again this year.
all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us...
