Looking out Earth’s window

On a spring evening

Jupiter and Venus gleam in the west

Mars and Saturn rise like sparks

From some distant bonfire in the east

I’m looking out Earth’s window

Peering at our neighbors

As they make their nightly rounds

And it makes

Me feel

Small

The sensation

Looking out that window

On an expanse so huge

The clockwork movements

Of which we are simply dust specks

On a single cog

Yet this little speck of dust

Holds a love

Bigger than this solar neighborhood

The sun and all the planets

Could be fit

On the head of a pin

Compared to my love
