Belonging - Poem by Udaya R. Tennakoon

Above the space
Among countless stars
The moon was rising

I came out and
Lit up my cigarette
Under a tree
Looking at a tree

I felt
That I am belonged
To the earth
As if trees

I felt
That I am belonged
To the universe
As if stars
And the moon

Though not to you
I came back
After the smoke
Disappeared

    A Very good poem with such a broad scope. But the am is not necessary. Perhaps it could read:
    I felt
    That I belonged
    To the universe
    As do stars
    And the moon.
    Enjoyed Adeline
