“A star falls from the sky and into your hands. Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside your blood and becomes every part of you. And then you have to put it back into the sky. And it's the most painful thing you'll ever have to do and that you've ever done. But what's yours is yours. Whether it’s up in the sky or here in your hands. And one day, it'll fall from the sky and hit you in the head real hard and that time, you won't have to put it back in the sky again.”
― C. JoyBell C.

I love how even your shortest poems manage to convey so much emotion, while leaving room for the imagination. Amazing job, and congrats on getting published!

Thank you! I actually had no idea I'd get published, especially not twice in two consecutive months. This is amazing, really.

Thank you, Mackay- I'm glad you took the time to read this. And I'm really happy to be in the magazine, so thank you again. I just found the book on Amazon, and it looks really good. I'm going to buy it for myself, I think. So thank you a third time for introducing it to me!

it reminds me of this book i saw today at a book store called chasers of the light by tyler knott gregson. it's ridiculously cute but astounding. if you haven't read it, go buy it. it's worth it: the style and formatting and the poems themselves.

Thank you. At this point, I honestly can't remember if I meant to do that, but at this point I don't think it would sound better in the format.

I'm rather amazed I didn't notice that, to be honest @-@ How did I get an editors' choice for this?

I really like the concept of your poem, it's creative and original. However, technically it's not a haiku because the last line has only three syllables instead of five. Great work though and congrats on getting editors choice! :)
