Fallen Star


We look at the night sky and say,
‘Look, it’s a shooting star,
Make a wish’.
When in fact it’s a falling star.
So why wish for something,
That is happy when,
It is actually sad?
Why make happiness out of a fallen star?
Are we really that sad?

    I believe seeing a falling star isn't an everyday occurence...so it is good to make a wish...maybe I will start making a wish on a rainbow also.... :) (Report) Reply

    Interesting, maybe we are. It's better to make something happen yourself, than make a wish, though. Great poetry, very thought provoking. (Report) Reply

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
