Falling Star



Falling Star
By
Lisa A.Williams

Newborn-
cradled in the sky,
where wishes
cast a wanting.


Expelled
 from an ancient galaxy-
shining clear
untainted
by world.

Wise in your pureness
seeing beyond shadows,
plummeting
 to your dark death,

taking our wishes with you-
where they are scattered
 in the marrow of earth
to be reborn.

  2. Brilliance... in the stars fall, in the rebirth, but mostly in the writing, the creation, the idea.
