Mizar and Alcor – this pair are only ninety light years distant which, in astrological terms, is very close. Inseparable. You were my Mizar and I tried my best to keep you close.

Merak. A bluish-white star in the loin of the Great Bear. Snatched weekends in my attic flat above the roofs. Tea, toast and making love among the crumbs and the sun lighting up the dusty particles like millions of tiny, celestial bodies. The sweet ache of parting and the late night whispered I love you’s. I’ll love you to the Plough and back a billion times.

    Yes, beautifully done throughout, but I really love "Tea, toast and making love among the crumbs and the sun lighting up the dusty particles like millions of tiny, celestial bodies." it's just so evocative.
