2023 Celebrating National Poetry Month: Jupiter, David Marvin

Jupiter David Marvin



Banded, ringed, covered by storms, 

It’s size alone beyond belief,

The giant planet and its 92 consorts

(As of this day in 2023)

Clears a swath of space debris,

And gravitationally creates the chaos

Called the Asteroid Belt. 

Does Jupiter preen, flexing its place

In the solar system?

No. True greatness

Speaks for itself.

Jupiter David Marvin
