Sliding slowly out of control

Brilliantly, our motherly star
shines unobstructed
dwarfed by an epic endless azure
landscape, free of clouds
those oft humorless chaperones,
holding the sun and soil
a proper distance apart
not unlike young couples
during black-tie formals
sliding slowly out of control
