Stardust

Tonight the Universe has opened its doors to us.

Inky waters lapping jagged rocks

As we stare into a blanket

With the texture of

Black velvet apricots,

Dark and sweet.


A granite sky studded with diamond pins,

Linking our present to our past.

Ploughing forward, 

Endlessly,

Ceaselessly,

Pulled back we are.


We gingerly gather our footing,

Striving to stand still whilst

Clutching wish bottles, tightly sealed.


We are set in motion,

Spinning tops, shattering.


Nothing is stationary.

Another illusion,

Scattering.

by Yusra Ahmad
