Mag 155 — galaxies

At the Galaxy Cafe' she sat
her thoughts orbiting
the sun of her burning being,
moonshine skin luminous
and admired by a star
of his own show in the
corner, over by the
quiche and tabouli cooler.

Without warning, probably
something like how Earth
will be surprised one day,
he became a hot meteor
seeking its cosmic source,
and was suddenly upon her.
One deep look, then with a 
they started a revolution.

Written for The Mag: Mag 155 that inspired with the above photo prompt (artwork by Joseph Lorusso).

rosaria~ Thanks. This one is for all the lonely people.....

Helen~ Fun to know that....the quiche and tabouli cooler came directly from a downtown brick corner cafe' in Salem where I had a snack after massage last week. And therein ends the similarity to the poem!

Wayne~ I appreciate your comment; thanks!
