Shooting Star

I have never fallen in a shower of stars.

They tell me
It is life shattering

They tell me
It is like waking up in a sea of blue

They tell me
It is our ancestors calling to us
Our hearts exploding to join them


And as our fire
Streams down
Like a thousand silver ribbons in a rushing waterfall
Our souls
Hiss
In that sea of awakening
Steam rising up to heaven’s bowl of sky

And our sparks melt into the earth
And the roots are the buds of our new life

And we sprout
Up to that sky

To greet the brothers of our future.

"It was one of those awe-inspiring experiences where you truly feel that the poem is coming through you, that you are only a conduit for something that needs to be put on paper."- That was important. Please write something that has to do with this quote of yours. It really is incredible.

Thanks! Yeah, I think writing about that would definitely be worthwhile. I'll let you know if I post a piece about it!
