A poem about my favourite part of the solar system :)

"Think", it explained as it felt the touch of your glare,

Staring up at what stood out in what looks like mid air.

The feeling of the wind brushing against your skin,

Hardly existent as you lean on the balcony waiting for it to grin.


It spoke.

Words as gentle on your heart as its rays are on your eyes

You inhaled its wisdom as you captured every last beauty of its light.

You drank its serenity

Closed your eyes to absorb what diffused into the air

You allowed it to swim into your body

And felt it elasticate around every bone, every vessel, every strand of hair.


Like a blanket hugging your body its peace hugged your soul.

Standing in the nights wind. Snuggled, cuddled,

Oh your metaphysical could want nothing more!

Time has frozen, life has stopped

Even your numbness begins to embrace the beauty...


But hey, the sun comes up.


The blanket melts, the serenity fades;

Your heart cries with discontent as you start a new day.

"Not to worry", the fading voice begins to whisper,

"My light is only a reflection of the Earths beauty and comes out when your soul begins to whimper"

This is amazing. I like the manner in which you related about your favourite part of the solar system.
I also wrote a poem about an object in the solar system and will post it when it is properly edited.

This was intriguing, and very heartfelt and beautiful to say the least. Publish more, I'd be happy to read it. ^_^

All the best in future writing :)

Beautifully written. It has such an elegant flow to it. This was a different topic for a poem, and I enjoyed it a lot!
Keep up the great work,
