Treasure Island

Harley White


Like A Diamond In The Sky


Twinkle the stars in night's display—
Sun's shining rays light up the day...
and yet, if futures vast we may
divine, white dwarf with diamond core
(that crystallized in ages yore)
will pulsate like a cosmic gong
its tintinnabulary song
(no longer sunbeams to bestow)
in seven billion years or so...;

then Sol might twinkle for the eyes
of distant poets far more wise,
beyond our cares— whoever dares
(if dreamers dwell in heres and theres,
whate'er whene'er where'er they are)
to seek and find our once bright star
(that like us also flames and dies) —
those with the loupe to look with sighs
for long lost Lucys in the skies...

(September 2010 – Granada, Spain)
