The Galaxy of Earth: Full of Joy

Black hole,



White dots with blue scribbles

it’s like a spinning circle.

A galaxy, it’s oval and colorful,

tastes like yogurt and feels like a foggy day.

It smells like air or sugar.

It smells like cake.

Active and excited

Happy, happiness


Full of joy.

It’s like a fruit salad,

a unicorn,

a star,

And a Cake of infinity bites
