Contemplation for a Great Conjunction

Look at us.

The space between us that threatens us

Each, both, and together.

We, who seem worlds apart, like Jupiter and Saturn…

Let us enter the space between us, curious and eager for discovery

From the inside—not from outside,

cold, bold, dark edges, borderlines, and walls,

From the warm light inside us,

together, let us be us.

Let us sit in space together, tell stories and listen,

and consider where and how we might align

Unthreatened, holding hands,

dancing in embraced shared space

What a great conjunction we are!

Look at us.
