Falling Stars


Meteors flash across Cygnus 

They trail light 

One by one

They come alone

My eyes meet theirs

Wishes don’t come

Thoughts aren’t there

Worlds away from me

Hope is a kid’s game

Like the other stars 

We stand quietly 

Together but apart

Why I notice isn’t why

What’s noticed is why

Dust falls as strangers

We think they were stars

Darkness appears as light

In falling stars fading
