I saw Selene and Afrodite
glowing in the sunset
almost close enough to kiss
the goddess of beauty
and the brighter queen of the night
both bright sickles
in the darkening sky.

With every hour that passed
growing apart again
sweet lovers
parting not quickly
looking back with sweet regret
and love for what has been
and acceptance for the ways of the sky.

And knowing
there will be another time.
