Weeping skies

Weep!
Weep, skies!
Cry and wail,
Cover yourself in darkness,
Let the clouds hang low.
Scream, thunder!
Howl!
Let the Sun hide his face,
Let him not rise from his
Bed in the West;
Let the stars be silent,
Let there be no twinkling;
A star is plucked out today
And a void is left
In the galaxy.

Weep!
Weep, heavens!
Flood the earth with tears,
Your grief is inconsolable.
Let the Wind groan in agony,
Let him not keep silent,
Let his voice reverberate over a thousand miles;
Let the Moon bury his head in his chamber,
Let not his face be seen;
A star has fallen,
The world will no longer
Be the same again.

  1. So, I beheld that title and I thought…’this was most definitely inspired by the falling rains that’s xterizing and holding sway in these parts, this season in time! With the skies ‘whipping’ up a great amount of torrential downpour’! But as I read along, I found instead, an annoucement being made of a Shooting Star that’d become a Fallen Star! You threw me off, you did Doc; and I absolutely love the use of constellations in this dirge! The dramatization greeted by the exclamation marks in some of the lines is really cute and innovative! Gives the piece a lotta power, making it a real compelling one!

    Write & rock on Your Royal Rockship, this totally grabs! šŸ‘šŸ˜‰

  2. Weep Sky.
    To me, this poem holds different meaning.
    I love it.
    I was within it to fully grasp its meaning.
    A well delivered poem.
    And some messages too…

  3. It is a shame I will take this poem literally. My people say what a man doesn’t know is older than him. I don’t know the fallen star and I am sympathetic but I do wish the rains could come out and flood the earth. We have planted yam, we have planted cocoyam, no rain to water them. A lot of stars will fall if this continues.

    Thanks Topazo for sharing this, He knows
