The Universe

&you smiled because you knew
exactly where we were —
on the path where Earth
hugs Venus as much as
she hugs Mars
&we could see that Jupiter
was so far flung
we shouldnt ‘t even bother
&i liked that you showed me this
planetary alignment bracelet
explaining our treasure
&what’s more is that
even though you couldn’t think
of the word ‘alignment’
i aptly spoke it–
&so it goes
without saying that
for today, I feel so significant
with you here– in our
jewel-set universe

  1. “jewel-set universe” is spectacular….and I loved following the links to the other poems as well….such treasures all on their own 🙂

  2. Gosh. Another favorite! I’m a star-gazer…big time! Do you take poetry requests?
    I keep thinking Orion’s Belt needs to go somewhere. My terribly unromantic husband always helps me find it when we star-gaze. Love the magic of the universe, and you have captured it. Xo
