Little Stars

 

little stars

shining words scatter

from a little mouth

 

talk is so little

under all the little stars

the vaguest comfort

 

then talk closes

in the distance between us

little stars

 

little stars

who hears brilliant words

come close

This poem was written in response to Carpe Diem #635, Stars, another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here. And, to finish, here’s a delicate song by Big Star –
 

Mauve

 

mauve at evening –

snow makes the street

a better story

 

mundanity

starred to death

in the weather’s glass
