#OctPoWriMo16 Day 01 – Reflecting

opo-01

 

Reflecting

 

And they were most careless

In matters of the heart

Lives scattered with brightest joys

Darkest sorrows

The clouded uncertainties between

Unconsciously reflecting the heavens above

Newborn stars flaring into supernovae

An emptiness marking the space

Where at last they faded

Into memory
