Untitled #1

The foolish man looked up at the evening sky and chanced upon the moon, Jupiter and Venus. Venus would be the first to set, while Jupiter and the moon would stay for an hour or two hence, close to each other – at least from his vantage point.

The fool failed to realise that Jupiter was much further from the moon, and fancied them being together simply because they appeared to be so. Venus looked on silently, somewhat contented. She could well be in the very same phase as the moon, but the fool knew no better. So she bided her time, knowing that she would be always closer to the moon than Jupiter ever would.

The fool thought twice, smiled weakly, and went on with his worldly life.
