Hi there! Please enjoy this poem about stars that I wrote this morning in time that I probably should have been using to actual work…
Have you ever seen the stars?
I mean, I know you have,
Have looked up at the night sky and seen those angelic,
Pearly, luminescent silver sparkles that adorn the heavens like
A string of Diamonds adorns the hair
Of a Queen.
But have you ever, ever really seen –
The blanket of opalescent rainbow hues that coat the deepest darkness
Of the celestial sphere,
Little vast pinpricks of light that seem only to appear
With direct sight, and in your periphery fade
To a subtle smear of bleached silver despite your desire to view
All the constellations, all you see is this tangled web,
That you hold dear even as they fight for your attentions,
The night is over and the grey light of dawn discolours your amazement, and life
Little does anybody know,
That you have seen the stars –
And you can’t let go.
