A BEACON IN THE MORNING SKY

Recommended Posts

Like a beacon in the morning sky
Venus she shines big and bright...

Like a lone entourage
Guarding the sun
Across the waking firmament,

As he gently glow of orange and yellow
Rises from his skyline den,

I see through the haze
Of this Christmas morn
At the hour that say half past six,

As Venus seems to plot out the path
For the sun's journey from the east to the west

To our confined eyes
Venus she is,
Like a big bright star...
A diamond in the sky,

Twinkling in the dawning of a day
Standing apart in the eastern sky,

But with the telescope I clearly can see
Venus she is
Like a small half moon,

she's silver,
She's grey,
She's beautiful...

Forever drifting like a promise kept,

In her retrograde orbit,
A rebel she is
Amongst the other celestials a peculiar one,

She is truly a goddess
In the vastness of space
I cannot tell whom I love the most,

The moon
Or Venus,
In the calmness of the morning sky.

I love them both
They are silver
They are grey.

Really lovely poem!

Venus really does make for some great viewing at the moment. I caught it in the binoculars along with Mercury and Jupiter this morning.

That's a nice follow up on your recent Moon poem. :)

I think it's a wonderful way to record your observations and thoughts. Equally valid as sketching or imaging. You have a talent for it.

I still havent viewed mercury nor jupiter as the are closer to the sun at the moment, I haven't perfected my skill with the telescope so am being careful so I won't do damage to myself 😊

I really wish I can take photographs of what I see but iv been unable to. Maybe I need some kind of device.

Very wise. If you have some binoculars that can be a good way to find Mercury as it’s so low

I've been observing the skies for more years than I care to admit and I cant remember Venus looking as bright as it does now.😎
