DAY #39: The Shape of Things

The Shape of Things
by Caledonia Skytower

The Universe makes clear,
the true shape of things.
Even Pluto, in its disappointment
knows the nature of an orbit.

It does not take planet-tude
to know when you're closer
to the flaming gas giant,
and the inevitable chilling
of the outward swing.

Around it comes again,
imperfect and imminent.
All things gained, passed by,
yet found once more as
time regains destinations.

Yet, what of the unimaginable
the expulsion, hurtling,
flinging out of the ellipse
and the great void of unexpected?

There is no cause to fret:
Time will guide your course.

Finding once more,
a new center, new orbital destiny
and a new heated homeworld
where the greater journey
is never a straight line.
