Falling Star

Last night, I blew you a kiss
From the dark side of our moon.

It shot from my lips
Like a falling star,
Singing of lost radiance,
Before flaring out in the
Palm of its long, lonely bow.

The other stars just hummed,

There will be other moons.
There will be other kisses.

That's very touching, Wayne. Thank you.

Thank you too, shameless. :) Have been enjoying your posts quite a bit, as well.

Easywriter, I think we all ask ourselves that question sometimes. And it's then that we know we're on the right track.

Thanks again!

A gesture to someone far away.

A kiss is like the grain of sand slicing our atmosphere. The shooting star's brilliance is matched only by its brevity.

Beautifully put, Jason.

Sometimes the briefest moments are the most ecstatic, and full of intention.

That is lovely. I wish I was poetic.

@Sarah:- You know of love only too well to write this lovely gem. Perhaps one of the best short poems I have read on a blog. :-)
Can't help mentioning Goethe: "If I love you, what business is it of yours?"
Had never heard something so perfectly and succinctly put together. Kudos. Write more of such...
Am caught up too much too think of even posting on my blog. Life is a worthy bitch ;-)

@Ello:- What's stopping you?

Sarah Hina said...

Ello, thank you. I don't write poems as often as my husband does, but I'm always grateful when I try my hand at it. It's very much a moment lived.

I'm glad you stopped by, casdok! And thank you. :)

Abhinav, your praise is more than I deserve, but I am grateful for it. :)
I hope you catch up soon!

One beautiful voice, as the chorus supports her journey in the background. I felt supported just reading this.

Thank you.
