Poetry: “The Perseids”

Perhaps you also watched them, last week?


The Perseids

Little lights across the sky
Burning brightly as they fall
Now they’re there, and now they’re gone
Bright against the midnight dome

They’re not stars, no not at all
Though there is similarities
It’s just dust, left out in space
The detritus in comet’s wake

Spot them there, but once a year
As our planet moves in space
Yet another proper proof
Of time that passes, constantly
