Haikus of planets and moons

Planets suspended
on the ecliptic like notes
on a music staff.

+++++++++++++++++

Jupiter

Jupiter’s lover,
Io, swings round at his waist
held close yet aloof.

Europa: her shell
alabaster and black grooves
may hide an ocean.

          ˜

Saturn

Cold Enceladus
a marble levitating
above icy rings.

          ˜

Uranus

Uranus will round
the sun once in my short life
glistening green jewel.

          ˜

Neptune

Preternatural
blue bands punctuated by
white tendril storm clouds.
