Distractions: A Book of Poetry

Poems that I've written


18. Star Gems

Stars sparkle,
glittering eyes in the sky
They glow in exquisite shades
of crimson and cobalt and gold
Here on Earth,
to the bare human eye,
they are cold, white diamonds
They whisper stories
and put on dazzling shows
that will forever awe and inspire
Streaks of fiery orange, white, yellow, and blue
paint the sky
as the gems fall and become simple stone
Now they are precious ore and minerals
Now they whisper secrets of what's up there
Now their beauty 
lies within
