~~ Purple Rain ~~

(for a.)

the night you came to be
stars, startled from their slumber
were brought the news by passing clouds
awe-struck, this stellar host vibrated
set aglow with their joy
glimmering radiance, one to the next
'til it shone clear across every constellation

galaxies hummed, strumming astral melodies of celebration
clouds erupted, their thunderous applause manifest in purple rain
honouring your new earthly existence

no longer able to hold it in, the stars burst forth
a chorus of pure light showering jubilation
cosmic t(r)ails blazing
scattering their glittering homage from every corner of the skies

so it is, they say, that shooting stars were born
and you the first among them
