An asteroid travels in resonance
With Jovian orbit around the Sun.
Unstable, also invariable,
Caressed by nothing but solar gleam.
A fragment lost in the aftershock
Of wondrous, one-of-its-kind events.
Forgotten, formless, and fossil-like,
It keeps traversing an empty space.
But planets are perturbative.
A touch is usually strong enough
To change its path unexpectedly
Toward a fiery rendez-vous.
That’s how my poem approaches you:
It breaks and falls in a silent night.
Because attraction demands its due.
