NaPoWriMo, Day 2: A Poem About the Stars

The most beautiful idea about the stars I have ever heard
Comes from A Wrinkle in Time.
Stars are alive and have thoughts and choices.
And when a cold and wicked darkness threatens to cover the universe,
Stars can choose to die.
They can go supernova and let their light shine its last and brightest,
To defeat just a piece of the black.
It’s a lonely and amazing and wondrous idea
To think that so many heavenly beings would give up everything…
To give the rest of us time to do something.
