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 Zeus--Jupiter. 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. j.c
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.

Response to reading Ghost of Jupiter's work. If you haven't read her...do 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
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
