“Planets and Poems”

on this earth –
lover’s moon
gazing down
whispering her reassurances
in beams of light and
arcing and ebbing ocean tides
you stand inside me,
the millisecond before
“let there be…”
intoned a world into motion
a sky before a sky
the God before God
towns that blaze eternal
from inner light
beg to call you their home
like some palm branch
making love to a passing breeze.
it’s you,
ya know
it’s ALL you.
my sweet,
there’s a game we can’t
seem to stop playing
that always
leaves us
in planets
and poems.
