Where are you Galileo?
Laying beneath the stars somewhere
remembering the night we
made love under them?
Was there ever a night
such as that before or
shall there ever
be again?

We spent hours roaming
the constellations together;
you pointing out each one
with all the passion of
your namesake…
flying with me
through the
nebula of
your heart.

The sky so black and infinite
it felt like we were falling up,
counting the meteors one by one
as they streaked across our vision.
Perseus would be proud you said,
to know we spotted so many ~
a kiss for each one as a
gift given by the gods.

Sensing the movement of the Earth
as the heavens passed by,
glimpsing deeply into the
heart of the universe
we felt it beating,
expanding to the
pulse of we two.

And when the night chill
began to make me shiver
you pulled me close
and closer still until
it seemed we were
one body, melded
in the inferno we
created with our

As we gazed up from
our sleeping place,
listening to each others
love spent breathing
the stars were
smiling down,
twinkling to
the rhythm
of our love.

Come back to
my arms Galileo!
