they say that if a butterfly ***** its wings
at just the right place,
at just the right time,
it can cause a hurricane halfway around the world.
crazy isn't it?
how something so delicate
can collapse an entire village.
makes me wonder if you knew you had a poisonous touch--
mercury running through your veins
like Hermes relaying messages back to
there is a massive storm
larger than Earth
that has raged the planet relentlessly
for hundreds of years
no end in sight.
they call it the Great Red Spot.
it reminds me of you.
how long did it take for you to grow into your anger?
your fists have been balled for as long as i can remember.
got me wondering when you're gonna swing.
Disrobe the rhythm in my heart.
Let it ceremonialize its own unsympathetic departure,
in the dead of winter.

Let it yowl like a pack coyotes.
Then let the wind take the
melody to Jupiter in Capricorn.

I still hope
that we fall asleep

when a young Ghost
is more substantial
than an old man,
the living must accede
to the un-dead child
Response to reading Ghost of Jupiter's work.  If you haven't read so.
You can’t walk to Moon
Neither can you walk to Sun
Never will red, or Ring help
The second planet always mourn

Negotiate and Negotiate

27 moon in its orbit
yet an startling soul

The blue planet and
One closest to the Sun
just hems round and round

The gas giant planet just
hangs and hangs
and its Great red spot
would not let us even toll

Out of her core, Out of her heart
Day by Day Earth falls
And none can help!
red-Mars, Ring-Saturn,The second planet-Venus,   blue-Neptune, 27 moon in orbit-Uranus, Gas giant and Great red spot-Jupiter, Closest to sun-Mercury

Jupiter moon,
You make my heart swoon.
Different to mine and earth’s,
You have worth.
Although you’re not a star,
You can equally shine and light up the galaxy from afar.

Giant, awesome planet
Made of no rock, no water, just gas
Pulling everything in reach towards it
With so much force some end up crushed

We cannot go near you
For fear of being pulled into you and dying
Maybe you just want someone to talk to
Lonely planet in the sky

Humans are so fragile, aren’t they?
You can’t even let one get close to you without breaking them
Lonely planet, forever lonely, forever apart

They must have some significance (?)
Perhaps she's into vanity
And just likes the way they look.

Maybe she's engaged to Jupiter,
But like so many men
He never intends to close the deal.

Could be they gently hold her in place,
As she otherwise has a far amount
Of wanderlust inside her.

Then again, there's always a chance
Her moons have conspired
Against her,
And aim to keep her prisoner.

Whatever it may be,
She's a mystery up there.
I only hope and pray she's happy
With her situation.
It's her life after all...
Sometimes there's more going on than meets the eye

super blood wolf moon
Venus and Jupiter kiss-
howling for romance
1/20/2019 - Poetry form: Haiku - On January 20, 2019, Forbes magazine wrote the following: "Are you ready for tonight's Super Blood Wolf Moon? A Total Lunar Eclipse will be visible from all of North and South America, and Western Europe. It's set to be a dramatic occasion, and one not to be repeated in terms of visibility for many years. However, few people are aware that just hours after the eclipse there will also be an unusual pairing of Venus and Jupiter in the pre-dawn sky.  In fact, though the headline refers to those in North America, anyone in Western Europe watching the Super Blood Wolf Moon turn red will be able to see Venus and Jupiter 'kiss' just above the eastern horizon while an eclipsed red Moon sinks in the west." - Copyright © Mark Toney | Year Posted 2019
