This Month's Poem

This Month’s Poem: August 2016

Well my Summer is officially coming to an end. Tomorrow is my first day of classes and while I’m really excited to continue my education, I’ll miss the relaxed, laid-back feeling that comes with the season. Thankfully, the warm weather doesn’t stop here. I’ll be able to enjoy it, at least until around October.


Anyway, not only is Summer coming to an end but also the month of August. And before it goes, I still need to post a poem for this month.


This one doesn’t have a name it’s something that came out of the blue last week, as I was doing a late night reflection. I first got the inspiration for it when I saw the Perseids (a meteor shower that takes place in the Northern Hemisphere during a few days in August). I hope you enjoy it.


I asked the stars

The question of love

Will it happen?

And when?


This was their answer:


We’re all the same, you and me

We live and we die

Sometimes, without ever getting noticed.

But other times,

The right person sees us

And our light reaches them.


But we’re all just a small part,

Just pieces of a universe.


Let me know what you think!

    I like short poems that send a simple message. My favourite part was the last line, but knowing me, I would have written more metaphors and imagery for ‘pieces of a universe’ 🙂

    Good luck with your classes and I hope the weather stays put 😀

    I love the poem, I always admire those who can write them! 🙂 Well done!

    Good luck with classes. I still have one month left, but I have to start studying for some exams, so basically my summer is over too.

    I love that poem, it’s so good <3. I can't write poetry and this is frustrating because I wish I could. Me and writing, are not best friends, unfortunately.

    I had another projects, I posted them in the portfolio if you want to check them out <3. Thank you for your compliment.

    I love the poem, true to the heart and very nice. We are all just a small part. We are pieces of the universe. I love it! I have not written poetry in awhile. Maybe one day I’ll share. I hope your first day back has treated you well. 🙂
