How lonely …

How lonely those planets

that travel all alone with

only far-off stars like gems on

black velvet waiting like

diamonds for engagements

that never were.

 

And no

sunrise each day bringing

new hope.

 

Even the lifeless moon is

in a relationship

with the earth, though

endlessly pale and

changeable and swooning.

    WordPress informs me that this is my 1000th post.

    I am not sure whether to be proud or horrified.
