this morning Venus
shone her light
so bright
it woke me
with delight
before daylight

such an awesome sight!

hope you caught it! I think that’s Venus to the right …

what’s that book “men are from Mars and Women are from Venus”, hello ladies


  1. I wish I knew where that star is shining in the sky.
    This star at dawn evoked beautiful feelings. Delight and reflection that she is so feminine and attractive.
    best regards

  2. Wondrous, Kate! Thanks for clueing me in on what’s above (perhaps). I’ll have to do some research to see if Venus is similarly visible from the northern hemisphere, because we’ve had a nice stretch of clear (i.e., non-hazy) summer skies recently.

    Funny, but before Mars became film’s Alien Obsession #1, Venus long was considered to be the most likely sources of extraterrestrial life. Perhaps that had something to do with the planet’s “feminine” persona, nurturer of life, and all.

  3. Sparky has been going out every night to look for the comet Neowise. I think I prefer the planets and the brighter stars to comets that come only once in 6000 years. Venus has been a bright morning “star” and Mars has been casting his red glare in the evening… Lovely poem!

  4. Beautiful poem and photo!
    I’ve seen Venus!
    Coops and I take a very late night or very early a.m. walk, sometimes walkS, every day…just to gaze at the night sky (the moon, the stars, etc.) and all of it’s glory!
    (((HUGS))) 🙂

  5. Guess venus is easily visible if the sky is clear. I know not which body is this but the picture is super awesome. Can I download it to write upon it? Picture credit all to you 😊
