Miraculous coincidence

Light years ago from here

Two dying stars

Collided helplessly

Unholy matrimony blessed

With clouds of gold

Half a century ago

Two vivid people

Collided helplessly

Holy matrimony blessed

With rings of heavenly gold

(Luck is accidental)

Inspired by Tasneem’s fine prompt and the mindblowing news of the origin of gold and platinum. 37 words for a story of 130.000.000 years.
