Threaded By Twilight

weavingYou weave your stories like the night,
stringing the moon with the stars;
the finest of pristine pearls,
threaded by twilight.

Weaving the finest Varanasi silk
with life as your celestial loom;
laying down gold- and silver-threaded brocade,
dormant gardens burst in bloom.

Your pen is the philosopher’s stone
turning lead hearts into gold;
manipulating structure in stunning stanzas,
inscribing on hearts in italics and bold.

Nodding in acquiescence
the sages of the ages,
will then add your magnum opus
to their papyraceous pages.

Like Gravity

orbiting

You draw me towards you
like gravity

the pull is
irresistible

floating in your orbit
around you
above you
below..

celestial bodies
dancing
gracefully

my planet
circumnavigating
your sun

my moons
orbiting
your planet
in synchronous resonance
like Saturn’s rings

But I fear the impact
of the
Crash
of the
Falling
into
you
