Rocket shipsare excitingbut so are roseson a birthday.-- Leonard NimoyRoses deliverbut so does a chicory spraysweaty-grippedby a toddler
Diamonds excitebut so do love songsscrawled in chalkacross blackboard sky
Love's lyricneeds no bylinewhen adorned with adjectivestattooed above the heart
The etymologyof our love affaircan be traced from the airlike cropmarks
Today is the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek original series! This is cause for celebration at my house. I wrote this poem a couple years ago, I think before Leonard Nimoy passed away. It is published in my most recent book, Heart Container. Live long and prosper!
