Some say Mother Earth and Father Sun. If that is so, then I see Earth as the flirtatious one.
She dances through the nether in living finery of every shade.
I wonder what the rest of the galaxy thinks of her?
She is far from the most powerful. But she is a home, a place to rest.
She is neither tame nor safe. Even so, we cling to her for dear life, pressed to her bosom.
Father Sun is ever her constant companion, unmoving. He lets her dance. Ever patient.
