A fiery tear
Tail blazing behind
Streaking across
Black forever

A diamond of gold
Black white and red
A most beautiful sight
You'll see ever

As it travels
Its unplanned course
Through nothingness
And far beyond

It carroes hopes
And many wishes
For only an instant
And then it's gone

It appears suddenly
Out of nowhere
Like some myth
Or a fantasy

Displaying to all
Its marvelous
And never-ending
Majesty

If you're quick
You can catch it
If you're not
Then you're stuck

For some people
Consider this
A big source
Of good luck

Ah....Lyndz ... it is a star thang !
The poets have captured the light of the stars on this starry night.
Should be a challenge to all !

I wrote that after spending an hour outside (11-midnite) with my father, watching for shooting stars. I appreciate your post. : ) This is my first time here.

Thank you very much. I think I'm going to enjoy conversing with other poets who write for fun. Besides, it's always nice to get some feedback.

Beautiful! I went out to look for stars, but evidently I missed the show.
