Star Falling Softly. ~ Jes Wright

Star Falling Softly

We make words
seem alive with our whispers
like smoke at the edge of a clearing,
drifting over the tips of pines
swallowed by nightfall.
Stars dotting deep in the dark
like me,
in the dark,
wondering how did I fall
like a star,
like a fly
into a Venus Flytrap,
swallowed alive for awhile,
until I found my wings
were still beating,
pulsing against the insides, so
that when she opened again,
I flew out,
back to the stars,
creating my own constellation
for you to recognize
the next time
a shooting star streaks through the sparkling dots
into the darkness
where you sit.
