Making Love to the Nebulae


Our Milky way is twirling around
a centre of old stars that glow in red
and yellow, held in the embrace of
four spiraling arms

Where hot, wild, young blue stars
are eagerly making love to the
nebulae – lovely clouds giving birth
to new baby stars

All safely protected within the beautiful
halo where fifteen-billion-year old stars
are happily smoldering; the sun and his
merry entourage

Are galloping in an up-and-down movement
around the galaxy centre, completing one
perfect circle once every two hundred and
twenty million years!
