Diamonds of the night

The night sky dotted with billions of stars. – Pixabay

Will you pick me a star?
Just one out of billions.
Name the star after me.
This is but a dream, mine.

The stars are falling.
Burning as they travel.
The night sky lights up.
A shooting star streaks.

Each time a star falls,
Is a baby being born?
When we die are we placed,
to be among the stars?

Eyes locked on the night sky.
I see beauty beyond awesome.
Like diamonds on black velvet.
Stars bright, night stars.

The bright lights of a city.
Over shadow the stars above.
But in the open countryside,
No city lights, only stars.

Twinkle, twinkle little star.
A Nursery rhyme still shinning.
Timeless and precious a diamond.
Stars shinning down from heaven.

The night canvas comes alive.
Look up and praise God.
Sprinkles of stars twinkle.
Diamonds of the night sky.

By. C.E. Pereira



I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
