Not personal but business, the set of circumstances that brought the orbits of our planets together through decades worth of solar storms like the links of logic in a Venn diagram. With the area of your aura defined and spoken for, I can only drop a throwaway line into the ether or an ever so casual glance your way snuffing sparks to respect the distance of decorum. Heaving a Hail Mary hope that in another time, place, or even dimension, I could go all astral awed Galileo, blowing breaths of hot poetry to spiral into space like celestial script looking for rhymes to ignite clusters of stars like jasmine flowers blooming in the deep blue velvet of night with enough passion to dance the modesty off a shadowed moon to trip the light fantastic.
