four shining dots

a glint few waves away
caught in my eye not
like a grain of sand but
like a star from the sky

This says so much about the impressions, brief and fleeting that the passing world make on an artistic and absorbing mind.

hi larry[lark]
i do believe in being a sponge rather than the sand. thanks.

would much like for you to read my immediate previous 'poem'...
 — varun

you didn't thank

I might add "a" before few, make it more specific.  

A glint, a few waves away,
caught my eye,
not like a grain of sand
but like a star from the sky.  From the sky?  Of course it's from the sky.  Maybe you could make it something more descriptive, "like star shine."  That last line needs some help, just not sure how to fix it up to make it better.  

Not sure what the 4 dots are, either.

I do like punctuation.

i thank you all the time, even without thanking. you have no idea...

thanks for you comment.
the sparks are the eyes are the stars of the sky. you can see it all in a grain of sand, yes you can.

let's go and sit inside a kaleidoscope and talk about shapes.

this lovely minimalist piece can be tweaked, I think, by slimming simile into metaphor:

a glint few waves away  
caught in my eye not  
a grain of sand but  
la star from the sky

 — listen

 — varun

i think the word 'like' lends.
thanks, femme.
