The Poetic Stars

A poem about writing and poetic longing

we tumble our grief like stars on the page,
we write and try to walk away from the sadness.

we blend the colours of the sky,
we rhyme and wait for the moon to sigh.

we writers love to awash our soul,
in poems, we leave behind our sorrow.

we poets know when we write
quietly our soul smiles.
