Women of the attractive planet

attractive planet

 

Women of the attractive planet!
You are our favourite planet.
We welcome your soft sculpted landscapes,
the shifting layers of your unhurried oceans.
All eyes acknowledge the slow swerve of your transit.

Women of the attractive planet!
The earth is humming your tune.
Thumping fires curve in your wake.
You rip blazing holes in the fabric
of the smoking hot universe.

Women of the attractive planet!
Your friendships are warm and scented.
Your conversations glitter with proximity.
We are connected by short and impossible distances.
Can you feel the invisible sizzle?

Women of the attractive planet!
We are cheerful students of your orbit.
The sky is holding its breath.
Colour our space with your complicated beauty.
You are our favourite planet.
