With every orbit
my love waxes for You.
The power of your brilliance
awakens this dead rock.
In those times when I must go dark—
hide behind our friend Earth
the longing fills my craters
my Plato, Copernicus, and Kepler, to the brim.
But when your effulgence again shines
on my Sea of Nectar, of Vapours, and Clouds,
my Ocean of Storms—
I lose concern over their dry lifelessness
because I have You to ignite me.
As our love deepens I see
that you are not separate from me.
Any moment, in darkness or light
with just one thought of you
I enter the glow of my full self.
You are me and I am you
folded together with all the stars of all the galaxies
that are and ever will be.
Your love is
