Reflection & The Sky is Full of Shining Stars

REFLECTION

 

the tree that stands

near the edge

of the pond

sees

the deep blue abyss

into which it would

one day tip

and fall

without end

 

 

 

THE SKY IS FULL OF SHINING STARS

 

The sky is full of shining stars.

Most are shining brightly yet some

are burning out as we speak.

And one, perhaps amongst

the most ancient of all the stars,

will soon perish.

And it is hard to predict

which one. Yet when a star dies,

it outshines all the others

and thus catches our eyes.

 

See how bright it shines in its last moment.

As if it wanted us to take notice

of its gesture of final farewell.

And even though we know

that such an event will occur once in a while

in the heavens full of stars,

when we catch sight of one that shines

for the last time,

something ancient within us stirs

—awakens and shines in return.
