A Star Fell

A star fell from heaven
and lit up the night
with crystalline diamonds
and ribbons of light.

It sped as it sparkled
with silver and gold
through moonbeams’ sheer magic;
a sight to behold.

In silence and wonder
we watched as it spread
across its dark course
dazzling colors of red.

It happens quite often
but only by chance,
that moment together
we watched the sky dance.
