Dear Ishtar Queen of all the stars in the sky

I am humbled in your presence.


The love god of the stars stop and speak with you last night


The angry valleys of space echo in your ears


when you replied

with your heart beating its way to the darker side of the moon

Did you count

The number of stars in a second

The number of moonbeams in the wink of an eye

or did you feel

The loneliness of my heart

Searching for you

Amongst the stars and cosmos of that

Bowl of blackness above

Inviting the sweet of Venus


Finding you were present all the time


The depths of my heart.
