=WAITING FOR JUPITER=

 

Anilam, Alnitak, and Mintaka,

Which I could hardly see.

Betelguese, Bellatrix, and Rigel,

Shine moderately.

 

Orion's belt intrigued my mind when I was just a kid.

Some nights entrancing me, some nights not,

And some nights from me hid.

 

But as of late, the constellation is the last thing I see at night.

Always sparkling in bow tie form, like a gentleman in the sky.

 

Seducing me by giving gentle, charming winks,

Jupiter peaks over the horizon.

Wooing me away from the stars,

I give my heart to this leviathan.

 

I fall in love ever more with the vast, wild, blue yonder.

Which gives love back and also gives my precious time to wonder.
