Day by Day

By: EarlB , 2:29 PM GMT on November 11, 2012


A bit of comet's tail came streaking to earth
As everything under these faraway suns turned cold.

It's coldest just before dawn,
Everything is slower
When waiting for the sun
To wake and warm on these cold days.
But, the morning glow can set hearts and leaves afire.

As the sun warms the air,
Autumn aromas erupt from fallen leaves
And then clouds erupt to litter the sky,
But both leaves and clouds are gone by sunset,
Blown aside as the day returns to golden.

Night slips in and re-reveals a milky path
Across the sky and millions of stars aswirl
In their circles; silence settles.
In a few hours, we'll see the comet's tail again
As the showers begin.

A bit of comet's tail came streaking to earth
As each of us held our breath and made our wish.

well thanks, i count your comment as high praise.
there is poetry for everyone i suspect, it's a
matter of finding what suits your taste. i'm glad
you liked this one.

another option for you is to write what you like,

sorry for the delay in reply, i was upgrading the
operating system on my computer last eve, and
wasn't able to keep tabs on comments. (i'm glad
