falling star chissweet

Diamond lights far above and away

speckled skies told in toddler rhyming

known well in legends, in myth


gazed at with naked eye

 and complex creatures of brass and mirror

can a star still long for recognition?

inside burning bright, is there a secret name

known only to them

that they long to share?

 are they lost amid clusters, swirls and tales

of archers and zodiac and animals

wanting to be known



so that in the falling

which even when accompanied by a wish

still hurts

there may be someone

somewhere in all the nameless skies

who cared enough to count

one less diamond light

and sit in silent sorrow

to mourn for a lost star

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
