Love’s Orbit

 

As you turn

Toward and around

Each other

You are star and sun

Spinning circles of bright wonder

Over and under

The dark space of time

 

Where there is no one else

In the emptiness

You burn for each other

 

In a dance you can’t rehearse

You spin galaxies together

For better and for worse

You are now your own universe

 

Love has a fierce and perfect orbit

Once you enter

Whatever circles

Must come from the center
