Distant Song

Songs of a foreign and distant star
Travel across an ancient sky
Wailing stardust floating free
Settle softly on thee
Free from a skew course
Arithmetic
Together
Always
Be

The words in bold are from the Friday 5 prompt posted by Michelle on her poetic blog www.poefusion.blogspot.com.

Thanks Michelle!

Hey Scott! Can we make a wish upon that falling star? Love what you did with such a short amount of space to work in. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice day. And, don't forget to take your wife out to eat tonight. Happy Valentine's.
