The transit of Venus

How can you focus with tears in your eyes?
Too many lenses spoil the vernal vision,
Hay fever, perhaps, flayed nostrils, red lids,
Or the effect of salt water from an empty conch,
Bathing the eyes after the disappearance
Of the Morning Star.

my morning star set in here with me and my eyes are still filled with tears. Your metaphorical expression deeply touched me. xxkathy

I was late...and only found the disconnected arms ;-)
There is a bright planet following the moon these nights. Do you know which it is?
