About Those Falling Stars

When the First Star Fell

… the clouds fled.
That lone star,
that fell.
So free.
A splash and then
its ripple came,
and the sea was quieted
by the night.
Shining starlight
was its special gift.
And no one knew —
in the dark the sun exists.

    in the dark the sun exists.”
