Starborn Poem by Martin Swords

Starborn

Rating: 5.0


We are the stuff of stars.
A star for each of us
hides in a starry sky.
There’s one,
shooting, blazing,
brilliant for an instant,
and then gone.
Whose star is that,
so bright.
Starchild.
Starbourne.
Stark night.
Remember, thankful
to have seen that light.

Very pretty. I understand what you mean about more is less just by reading you're poem. It condensed but its meaning is still overt. Continue writing.
