On life and its vagaries

The Yellow star

with 2 comments


This star I have in mind has no connection with the Jews or their presecution.  It is more  like a  star which brings forth life and not extinguishes  it ,  say like our own Sun,, which is considered a yellow star. The  Sun is in fact white, but appears yellow through the Earth‘s atmosphere due to Rayleigh scattering, (whatever that is),  they say. Other examples of yellow stars are Alpha Centauri A, Capella, Tau Ceti. My yellow star is rather one which rises inside our hearts I must say!

The Yellow star

They say when the yellow star

Begins to shine

A new era is about to begin

And I have been waiting long

For some glimmer or sign

Which portends the same

Sad as it may seem

The sky looks blacker still

And the darkness still pervades

Oh my yellow star

Where could you be hiding

In that stellar cold storage?

I invoke you with all my heart

Come forth o’ yellow star

enlighten these  gloomy skies

My  world is so rent

And torn and is about to fade

Come o yellow star , come save my world…….
