Distant Suns

"Distant Suns." (c)

Sometimes I pretend
that all the stars in the night sky
are really everyones' lit cigarettes...
and the one closest
to the moon
is you.
I remind myself that 
they are all
distant suns,
and that some are destined
to burn out
faster than others.

(c) Brent M Harpur, April 2009.

"We are all of us made of stars,
  human flesh is stardust."
  (Joni Mitchell)
