Astronomer - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

Your skin...........
A tapestry of diamond dwarfs,
Glittering on moonlit heavens;
Cascading from forehead to ankle;
A waterfall of ecstatic moonbeams;
Partaking perfection in a golden skyline.
Your eyes.............
That shimmer and blitz;
Like Venus at nightfall;
Twin getaways sprinkling highways of light;
Amidst your bountiful carpets,
Of diamonds and moonbeams;
Your hair............
Shooting to earthly gravity;
Like a meteor shower,
Bowing to a convivial tug;
Luscious and falling in a momentous bundle.
Your nucleus.............
Jupiter with her craters wide open;
Your magnanimous red spot,
Firmly clasped, in to the now boisterous mine.
All this celestial glory,
Purified to the retina,
Of my magnetized eyes;
For I am the sole astronomer gazing at your nightly sky.
