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.
