Comets--By Langley Shazor--United States


Falling stars
Twinkling at arms’ length
Shimmering above the ground
Suspended by their own force

Light travels much faster
Dazzlingly quick
Waiting not for it to reach our eyes
But for it to simply appear again

Visual love songs
Performed in unison
Meticulously choreographed
Each night danced away

In this vastness
The absence of light
Reveals the beauty of another sort
Two worlds blended perfectly

And this moment
I am a traveler
Moving through space and time
Sailing across the cosmos
