Saturday Shorts: Stars

Saturday Shorts: Stars

I guess you could call this a free verse poem… It’s from a time when I dabbled in poetry, probably one of the few ones I actually ended up liking how it turned out. And even now, I still think it’s a bit rough… But then, most of my poems are.


Stars Above and Below


Twinkling above the world, distant and cold

I would like to see what you are watching

On the ground far below, where we all dwell

Are you wishing to look up as I do?


From down here I can see the entire sky

Perhaps you see the same or maybe not

Is it your reflection that holds your gaze

I could watch your sparkling forever


But as the dawn draws shut the night’s curtain

And sends you to sleep in that vast expanse

You still look down, upon unknowing heads

Knowing you will soon draw their eyes again

starry night


    1. I’m glad you liked it. I hadn’t thought of it in that way, but I can definitely see what you mean. I think that’s one of the things I love about stars–looking up at them, you can’t help but feel like a child again, marveling at the wonders of the universe.
