Day 28 – Stars on Speed

Been feeling very sick all day. 55 minutes ago, I dragged myself from the warmth of my bed to meet today’s obligations. Tried to keep it simple. Choose a favourite topic/common theme. 15 minutes to write (took less, just to capture these sketches). 15 minutes to edit. 15 minutes to find image (it took a fraction longer, though one image I saw, provoked poem pt vii). 15 minutes to update blog. As of writing I have 8 minutes to complete part IV (then back to warmth). So given those constraints, please understand this is a rough draft …


the stars, though hidden by clouds, are still shooting

once we were
the night sky
& every egg
of light was ours

now i wander
through vast
black vacuums
lost, alone

even stars would crack
if they looked too long
into your dark matter eyes

love floats
time breaks
— & all the stars
fall so quietly
no one notices

alone in a lighthouse
under the sea of stars
waiting for your return

wild mind  cobweb memories
misty flowers  narrow window

a love that was  never as good
as i want to  remember it

the stars  shatter

you reminded
me of my heart
as it once was
no wonder i fell
shooting star fast
in love with you

when we reunite
the whole of heaven will glow
stars will fall like rain
till the sky is pure white
