Last Night 


Breaths taken too deep
Gulps taken too fast
Puffs taken too strong
Words taken too light;

Conversations that felt good then
Makes no sense in the morning

Emotions that sounded right then
Cuts no ice anywhere with the sun

All that is left of the beauty of the night

Left over ash
Forgotten dreams and
Writings on the wall.

Just A Moment with A Star

Look up for a moment, 
Just for a glimpse of the night sky,
There are many stars up there,
Flashing, blinking, winking at you;

Indeed it is a starry starry night;

There are clusters and there are groups of them,
They shine bright – you name them after Greek gods and goddesses, 
Each holding a name deserving of the light they shine,
Showing the world what it means to illuminate and twinkle; 

There is a lone star at the corner of the night sky, 
If you look closely enough you can see it radiating faintly,
Maybe it just formed or perhaps it is in its twilight stages, 
It cannot shine as brightly as the others and it is almost not there; 

Take a moment – remember, 
There’s a lone star somewhere,
In need of some attention and some affection,
Catch it right and you’ll re-ignite the brightest star in all the universe;

Just a moment with a star. 

In Transition

Some people are forever in transition,
Stopping by places and times but always moving on,
Leaving behind footprints and memories but nothing really much more,
Walking away after the song is over and never waiting for the applause or encore;

Such people are very much like shooting stars that appear in the shadows of twilight: 
They light up the skies for lovers to dance and disappear quietly back into the darkness of the night.
