1. If our stars align

Venus shone brightly whilst Mars only shimmered
Each orbiting in our designated space within space
Planet Earth was our neighbourhood playground
In later years it was our romantic hideaway place

Then came a gravitational pull stronger than our mutual attraction 
Galactic events became a distraction.
Some future day, if our stars align, 
We might find each other again.
A galaxy of stars

2. City in the sky

They are up there, I  know.

Look for the glow of their city lights in the night sky.
See them fly that rocket of green. Heading home to their galaxy star castles.

Or are they coming here, sight unseen, to harvest the unsuspecting ones? Those who dare to venture out at night, those who point cameras towards the light to capture Lady Aurora’s sunglow. 
Do they sit in their skyscrapers looking down on our world. Are they scheming to capture the photographers who seek the mysteries of their skies?

Where does Lady Aurora hide in the daylight?
