Sat on the bus watching some very twinklish stars. The result; two small poems :)

Twinkling secrets

Twinkle twinkle little star
Do you ever wonder who we are?
We who forever stare and gaze;
Yearning the enigmas hidden afar

Twinkle twinkle little star
You might not have noticed me
But you would be surprised to know;
What mocking eyes tend to see

Twinkle twinkle little star
I only wanted someone to hear
The inhuman depths of my findings;
Gained by observing year after year

Twinkle twinkle little star
I know what secrets you've kept untold
You keep yours and I'll keep mine;
Glowing kindness returned tenfold
