Nicely on the Planet Far

Once
upon a Gift
there was a flower no one picked.

She blossomed in the spring
on planet Far;
it had nine moons.

Its twenty-two seas
were full
of Smiles.

Big ones.
Little ones.
And the smallest ones were Sighs.

Its mountain caps
were born to sleep.
It deserts talked to Gods.

Its skies were always busy making
wonder
out of rusty tears.

And the way
Far spun
was more

like dancing,

than just
turning
around.

And on the planet Far
were many
life forms born in jars.

The gift?
Her name was Nicely.
No one ever saw her twice.

Just
before
they met her

and just
beyond
they left,

they saw
themselves
inside her,

but her joy
made them
fear death.

This never up-set Nicely.
This never made her doubt.
She had a way of being here.

And the secrets
to how Life
comes back.
