Star“Now, steady friend,
Welcomed as remaindered gleam,
Earth’s enemy, long dead.”
Those words speak volumes to me,
For they describe a star.
A star, although shining bright today,
May be long gone by now in reality,
Never again giving off a warm glow to
Its planetary children, never again
Filling one with a sense of wonder
As to what is out there. But what
Difference does one star make when I
Cannot see any other stars?
Are they dead, too? How?
How could this happen?
Did they die in a blaze of glory?
No, they didn’t.
We killed them.
Our city lights have murdered
The heavenly ones.
The artificial has destroyed the natural.
Only pockets of such beauty remain,
Visible only where Man has not
Ravaged the Earth beyond recognition.
Yet, Man slowly encroaches into these
Pockets, determined to execute
Every last point of celestial light.
Are they our enemy?
Or are we theirs?
Will we finish our heinous work?
Or will we repent of
Keep in Touch!
