Poem - Planets Orbit

The poem “Planets Orbit” was inspired by a dream that featured two dance friends who are elsewhere in the world because of the vagaries of life. They’re out there, somewhere, and hopefully, our orbits will return to the same location in the future.


Planets Orbit

The planets orbit a central sun
each a dot in the void
each to their own would be complete
if the least was then pursued
yet the pull is still felt
between the travelers of deep space

a singularity will suffice
consider this to be a lie
an absence is not enough
to soothe the wants deep inside
while the journey carries on
minutes logged into miles

darkness rules in those realms
where the lack is always felt
with a promise of much more
when connections are explored
winking faintly in the sky
across expanses that may deny

to know another is divine
even if the odds are long
a hand will quest at the far end
for another to entwine
once the orbits are affirmed
a pull acknowledged within love.
