Poem: Stars Fall from the Sky


Poetry: Celebrating National Poetry Month


Stars fall from the sky
like drunken fireflies
or pieces of destiny.

Waves collide with
burning embers
boiling the sea
and creating new possibilities.

Volcanoes shudder,
return the stars to the night
and rewrite history.


For links to poetry prompts, or if you missed out on what I’m doing for National Poetry Month, check out the first post here.


To end each post, there will be this call to share your own work. Whether it’s something that you write as soon as you finish reading this post, or it’s a poem you’ve posted or had published, place the whole poem in the comments or put a link to it. A brief description before the link will help me process comments faster, so I know they’re not spam.

Also, feel free to share links to poems or spoken word performances by other poets. I hope this month will bring a wide variety of poetry to everyone’s attention. Also, there will be posts on my author Facebook page, a link to which can be found on the right-hand side, that will include spoken word performances and links to work of other poets, which will not appear here.

    This is so beautiful! I listen to it being read and read it again. The beginning recalls memories of Smallville for some reason. 😁

      Thank you! And I can see how that beginning would remind you of Smallville, with the stars falling down and pieces of destiny. 😃
