Stars Burst - Poem by Derek Karpinski

a starburst of love
encircles me
draws me in relentlessly

Two planets. Then.
don't collide
but achieve

a stable orbit
around each other
taking the best of both we

build from that.


if you can
if you will, Will the
deepest heart of union

we can do what we can will

Willingly we do (in glee and in strength)
and may our love
surpass all.
