Star Poem for the Dark

James Edward Dimitri DeppMarch 30, 2011

Shooting stars are like little flash bulbs

falling toward me,

from a glistening soup bowl of stars. Shooting

out of a million of flame throwers

at the night sky of a trillion little lights

right above me.

One night ago I looked up

at a million mini meteors

diving at my face. Every night

I look up and try to see

the little flash bulbs


toward me.
