A Poem and a Cold Beer

Star Gazing

A fading star in a sparkling sky
irrelevant now though once a sun
to a planet that was drawn and held
in a orbit that's no longer one

The light has gone, dimmed by a wind
that blew a breeze of honesty
and cleared the way for newer paths
and changed the course of destiny

Yet though a shooting star in a foreign sky
leaves trails of history far behind
The north star in the eastern sky
will forever be yours and mine
