The entire debris of unfearing stars

Who nailed my life to the night sky?
Who made me a watchtower of naked light
In the middle of the black sea ?
With memories frozen into my face since dawn
and words rumbling like thunder among unfearing stars.
I am like that stranded boat on a snowy winter beach.
Without luggage, without pilling threads
I collect deconstructed rubies like red stormlights
From fishing trawlers.
How everything must wander so nonchalantly
Through me I question
Not just the traces of you, but the entire debris
Of unfearing stars
Shattering in the enormity of the sun.

  1. What a magnificent world Trini, each tiny piece orchestrated to dance this universe in every way imaginable. And here we are now, treasured on this world to feel every single moment, and instead of ‘Singing In The Rain’ we are ‘Singing Among The Stars’ 😀 ❤
    Beautiful post my friend, gives a lovely appreciation of that immensity within 😀 ❤

  2. What such poetic words you begun your poem with.
    “Who nailed my life to the night sky?
    Who made me a watchtower of naked light”
    And overall a truly magnificent poem, full of wondrous imagery.
