Smoky Mirror Eyes

My limerick for a space Goddess Muse, introducing a ethereal alien to fresh snickerdoodle cookies & milk

The Milky Way galaxy is from where you beamed down,

Smoky Mirror Eyes, I was startled when I saw you, there was no sound

You looked funny as you tasted my icy milk and tender cookies, so oddly glum

You took my heart once we finished the dessert, a truly strange added sum

Then in a poof you left, just the crime leftovers of snickerdoodle crumbs settled in a smoky mound
