Stars

A poem I wrote to my English teacher when she retired.


One amongst the multitude would gaze up in awe
And in his sight he would capture
A moment as unique as it is rare
A hovering globe 
Overflowing with gold, showering the multitude with its unending contents
Inspiring envy within the rivers of El Dorado
Each droplet would sink into the soil beneath
Birthing glimmering auric trees from once mist enshrouded seedlings
And so did more of the multitude come to gather
The mulling throng stood dazed and gazing
Mesmerized by the omniscient presence looming above

Until one day
One by one, 
The multitude disappeared, receding into the ground
One by one did sprout shimmering trees
Till one day did appear a clustered forest
Swaying to and fro in the breeze
In tribute to the sphere of imminence above
Swinging more frantically in the anticipating gust
And with glooming realization 
They noticed a fading orb

Something is amiss, they thought
And with heart aching comprehension the trees stretched themselves to the skies
But before yearning could defeat reason
Unleashing its lassoes as the agent of reality 
Gravity pulled to its mistress what still shared their roots with their mother’s womb
And only could they stare, limbs strained, as their sun faded away
And found its long awaited place amongst its unreachable companions
Stars in our distant past.
