Nitu Roy: Figures of Thought: Collegiate Voices across Spaces

Galaxy of Shooting Star

That very night
When we had wished
to get a glimpse of a shooting star,
you taught me to
weave my own galaxies
among thousands lying afar.

You showed me how to figure hidden constellation,
and to celebrate their existence
and not to grieve for the ones lost.

And when it was time for dawn
and no star had fallen,
you said , " maybe they wanted
to stick around the want
to be with you".


I am unaware of your whereabouts,
but my ears eagerly wait,
anxiously hoping to hear the sound
Of your footsteps on the floor,
Or a call on my phone,
Or a knock on the door.
