We Are Stardust

Venus was so scintillating
her radiance beyond debating
I cursed my craven hesitating
and cried aloud, “My Love!”

At once She started coruscating
with brilliance that was captivating
my pulse acutely palpitating
just like a startled dove,

abruptly I was levitating
my earthly cares evaporating
and soon I was cohabitating
with my brethren up above.

Bob,
I loved reading the words of this poem. Very beautiful and had a feel of being taken to a higher level with a dreamy thought!

I must say that I like Carrie's words. You are BOTH great poets!
Best wishes Bob,

There are times
when all the world's asleep
the questions run so deep
for such a simple man

won't you please
please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
please tell me who I am
