Sharing: Perseids by Wolfnwings

Once you read this, you’ll never look at shooting stars the same way again. 🙂

I love getting sexy with the natural world. I love astronomy. I love mythology. I love anthropomorphizing nature.

So you can imagine that I really loved Perseid, by Wolfnwings. So much so that I felt compelled to share it with you.  Enjoy!

Perseid

That night

dozen of dying star bodies
streaming their rocket tails
in the near-black
night sky

each one shooting for the
beloved sea
in a suicide kiss
each light a celestial
sacrifice

until…

my body
slipping into black waters

silent as the night

liquid loving my cool skin
and each parting stroke
revealed a phosphorescent
dream

as though that
kamikaze glitter
had been swallowed
and saved
in a pearl-black belly
a hungry ocean
swallowing all light
