Comeback Star

A dazzling square of light

dances through my bedroom curtains

for the Saturday premiere

of our favorite celestial star

making its lively stage-left entrance

after a week of dull, wet Mondays,

providing its own hot spot,

upstaging everything on earth

as innumerable flowers raise

their parti-coloured petals in applause.
