17. Nights in Starview Heights

It was to be the night to end all nights. Safely ensconced in her glass haven with a thousand billion stars twinkling above, she waited patiently. After many years her dreams were about to come true. Her night in Starview Heights was about to begin.

The galaxy is not a small place. It is an infinite wonderland of fairy lights and light rays. A magical mystery to behold. Lucky at last to be a witness to the light projected from light years away, she felt so much a part of the giant cosmos stretching out before her.

Not for her was the scientific explanation. She wished for no more than just one single night to experience the magic of the galaxy.

“Oh look – there it is,” she whispered as if speaking aloud would destroy the magic of the universe. And there shining bright in the night sky high above, there swirled an aurora of such beautiful colours.

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
