Poetry Month 2023 Post #13: “Falling Stars”

April is #NationalHistoryMonth and I am posting a Poem-A-Day. Today’s post is a poem I wrote in the fall. Don’t forget to go outside and look up at night–the stars have so much to teach us.

Falling Stars

The instant I looked
outside there you were
flaming, falling from dark
sky. Veering east
and disappearing,
calling me to come
watch, peer into
the mystery of
fleeting, plummeting,
dissolving matter.
Clear pre-dawn heavens
dramatic leaps, jumps,
and letting go.
Flashes of ancient light
leaving home.
