Binary stars trapped in a fever
Dream. Shared Soul burns in blue
Flame, eternity, dance forever,
He leads, yet follows, too.
Palms touch, She spins away to Venus
And beyond His reach, She
Seas, Serenity, Luna touched
Her foot, leaping and free.
His feet stamped against a billion stars’
Light of Red Giant, glowed
Between teeth, He pulled Her from afar,
Orion cheered the show.
They would spin to a place no light reached
Beyond Eon’s black reach
To the Earth, She led, “Rest!” He beseeched
Fate, this Dance cannot cease.
