aligned in orbit briefly

while the planets & stars dance their time in eons
this singularly unique moment
is only ours, and it will pass
It has no meaning outside of us
your hand touching my face is a private thing
our dance feels for all the world like our own private thing
but, when it is over,
it will not be eons.
Just a breath.
Then, there will be other bodies
to take up our steps,
and the dance we danced
will be their own

What say ye?
