The Perseids in Your Eyes

The Perseids in Your Eyes

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

I see the shimmering Perseids in your eyes...

"

 

As I gaze into the deeping midnight skies

I see the shimmering Perseids in your eyes

Flashes bright and beautiful off the moon

Dancing on a starlit mask they’re strewn

I see you there among their flying forms

You glimmer bold in their silver storm

I call the winds to carry my midnight song

To the star-shifting shores where I belong

© 2010 An owl on the moon


Author's Note

An owl on the moon
The Perseids are so-called because the point they appear to come from, called the radiant, lies in the constellation Perseus. The stream of debris is called the Perseid cloud and stretches along the orbit of the Comet Swift-Tuttle. The Perseid meteor shower has been observed for about 2000 years.

A beautiful poem about a magical show of night miracles. Your words always gentle the spirit, always colour the imagination of your reader.

And yes, the Perseids are extraordinary flashes equal to the light in a loved ones eyes and more... I'm not sure she could compete, but, love has its own way of looking .. ' You glimmer bold in their silver storm '

Thank you for sharing.
