Five Planets in Alignment…


Mercury, Venus, Spica, Jupiter and Mars,

All visible this night surrounded by stars,

Does the alignment bring on any kind of pain?

Or is it the cold that does make me hurt around my scars…?


Those that do believe in the constellations power,

May this poem and idea find negative & glower,

But for me it is a sight I won’t again see,

Five planets in line easily seen yes they do be…


Astronomy a bit of a fun thing hobby,

Sometimes even better than going to a lobby,

No cost is there to spy on a celestial body,

Nor do I find my interest to be at all shoddy…

Sigh... I always hear of these things AFTER the show... I love looking up and seeing what I can see. Adam is quite well-versed in the "starry, starry night" so I will mention this to him.

I like your picture. Are those earth's little trees down there? They're cute! (smile) Thank you... katy xox.

Well I watch the skies too but not as much as I used to. I wonder too about my aches and pains.

It truly sounds like it is, Ed; and I should try to do likewise; the heavens are definitely fascinating.

And if I remember right, the Romans believed Spica represented the Goddess of Agriculture and Fertility. Sounds like you need that vegetable garden like Thoreau had; as for the second part - you're on your own!
