I Just Saw Halley's Comet Fly By


I just saw Halley’s Comet fly by
If I was in space I sure would die
Above dark telegraph poles, above the high
Beyond the wide
Sunset glow cirrus of blast furnace smoke
Halley’s Comet flew by
It’s a thirty-seven-million-mile-long kite
Across black combes black sky
Halley’s Comet flew by
And what of me
Halley’s son
Born of years of few too late
My mother said a few years it’s not too late
Fires in the sky my mothers soul
Halley’s Comet flew by
Now aged seventy-two
Waters in the eyes
My eyes looked above so high
Halley’s Comet flies by
At that high like a silent jet
Leaving its tail
Across black combes sky
Goodbye mother I say
As I die above so high
Halley’s Comet flies by
A star falls from the sky
The star is a falling cry
Burning ever so bright the
Starry tear from Halley’s eye
As Halley’s Comet flies by
I saw Halley’s Comet fly by


inspired by Norman Nicholson his poem of Halley's Comet was an dam out right amazing refering himself and how he almost missed seeing Halley's Comet he inspired this poem for me revealing that the end of a life is something new and that you might even end up being Halley's Comet in away and using a thirty-seven-million-mile-long kite to represents her tail made my inspiration for this poem even more my poem has some of his lines in it but only a few i wrote this in regardes of seeing his point of view i hope if you readers read this poem might seek his poem out its a very old poem and very beautiful

next poem is spin yourself a fairytale

    If you reach far to touch the star
    Calming place goes far
    Even you want to be in it's warm embrace
    And be peaceful until the next wait

    A lovely write I would love more (Report) Reply
