Slumber In The Sky

The moon is often very prominent in the sky during my morning commute.  The cool silvery glow is a perfect transitional light from the period of rest and renewal at home to the mentally intense part of the day at work.

On one summer morning something in the sky was different.  An object with a bright golden incandescence hung in the sky very near the moon.  I assumed it was a plane, yet the object never moved position.  During the remainder of my drive, the moon and this other jewel in the sky remained as a pair.

From a google search for star near moon in the sky, I learned it was not a star glowing near the moon, it was a planet – Venus.  Immediately, my mind began racing.  There is a great deal of symbolism associated with Venus in art and mythology.  The allure and feminine mystique of Venus ignited my creativity and this poem resulted.
