Day 7: A Book Called Hunting for Stars for GoDoGo Café

A BOOK CALLED HUNTING FOR STARS
            … assuming that stars are black and white

It might be a Friday,
in a rainstorm,
winter probably,

and I’ll slip away
as you read me lines
of century old poetry or prose
about humanity’s steps with

answers why we
don’t have sinks full of time,

and I’ll find myself on a road,
agreeably alone,
on a journey to visit myself,

and that day
will not be like before.

I’ll look at the enlightened sky,
a bottomless witness to my
black moods and white days,

and I’ll wonder why I only saw
night and burning stars before.

And I’ll be on a road,
it might be a Friday,
in a rainstorm,
winter probably ….

and everything will be clear
as black and white.

  1. A light bulb moment? Sometimes we can’t see the forest for the trees.
    So much grey. But then not all dark is disheartening.
    While I was away I was able to spot a familiar constellation and that made me smile.

  2. Oh, you left me buzzing with this one, Misky, even after my 3rd of 4th read. Awesome work.
    I’m a little out of gas these days; had to settle for a B&W haiku.

    • Thank you, Ron. I just rest your haiku, and liked it very much. A good haiku isn’t the easiest form to write (well). Take care of yourself, Ron.

  3. Reading your poetry makes me feel good. There is always that little bit of a head nod at some point and a kind of recognition of kindred souls. You make me want to do better – you inspire me.
