Consternation In The Constellations - Poem by Rani Turton

My love walks on paved stones
On paved stones he walks
Far far from home
He is far away and there is no more sun.

My love walks aoens from me under grey skies;
Dripping wet, at times clear skies that are dry
Just as are sometimes my eyes

My love walks and may never return
How do you ask the world to rotate counterclockwise?
The day is silent, the night is dumb
And now there seems to be
Consternation in the constellations
All is as quiet as misery
The stars blink out by billions
The tears that are gathered in the galaxy.

    Its said that -
    'Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love.
    The real miracle is the love that inspires them.
    In this sense everything that comes from love is a miracle.”

    The expression of love is superb
    The pain of love moving away is a disturb.

    Nice one. Touched by the sentiment.

    Breathtakingly beautiful... love it. Poignant with sublime imagery. I especially like the line about turning the world counter-clockwise, how many of us have wished this almost? HG: -) xx (Report) Reply

    Right from the rhyming title to the last word of your verse, it's indeed a beautiful journey, encompassing the silent day, dumb night, blinking stars and the vastest galaxy. The flow is smooth and I envy your style. (Report) Reply
