for Gulzar

Jupiter with it’s
many moons
and no one
to write about
any one of them

and here we have
maybe a billion
already written

this one included

I guess
one could be scientific
and lead with rotation
and something more specific
just let out a sigh
as one spots it
nestled between buildings
or gingerly
side step the puddle
in which
it is reflected
careful not to disturb
either of them

just be glad
for these brief hours
nature hands
her over
on loan
only to
send her off to friends
across the globe

the sun
a conspirator
dawn comes
heralding a victory
the day, his cloak

and somewhere
he waits
pen poised
going left to right
on paper old fashioned
never out of style
the celestial dance
his muse
fodder for his metaphors

I think
the sun, the moon
just for him

I wonder
what he would
have done
on Jupiter
