Tread Softly

This Thursday evening, look to the western skies as Jupiter and Venus, the two brightest planets to the unaided eye stage a close encounter over the Northern Hemisphere. Tonight's run saw me glancing up to the heavens to look at the planets as they slowly converged reminding of Yeats:

Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet,
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams
