lingering kiss

with a quiet request
a wink and a smirk
the heavens scattered
the stars fell to her side

a soft and lingering kiss
sighed into the dark night
releasing billions upon billions
of glittering sparks

the stars followed
them into the night sky
then a kiss with more intent
set the universe right again
