The tears of Laurentius, flowing
down to earth, signaling a rebirth
of heaven and earth, upon the turf
of G-d’s ever expanding creation –
from the center of the universe
towards the furthermost edge of space,
the human race rests, in anticipation
of the meteor shower every year.
As the comet’s tail sheds debris,
visible to the eye, most prominently
towards the middle of the eighth month,
when saints and angels ring their bells,
and heavenly voices tell of all
that has already been foretold,
reminding us to keep on a steady course,
as the stars appear to shift around us.
