Reach For The Stars

A love story
played out in a theatre –
twenty trillion
supporting actors,
it’s about love
between Venus and Mars.

The set is the moon,
and beyond the stars.

Light from the farthest star
refracts, scatters –
the stars retrace their steps
across the sky,
and forecasts a message
for the teachers,
in search of their creator
before death.

A white horse meanders
through a forest.

Night’s orchestra plays,
now the show must end –
racing comets
steer their way from afar,
as great curtains cover the scene
with clouds.
