I sit in the sleepy sky 

I am awake 

my sparkling sight shines above the talkative trees 

the sky sleeps and dreams but I am awake 


I am the eyes of the sky , or one of many 

thinking , seeing, awake , and tenderly curious 

of the sky and the trees talking silently below me 


I am a searching star 

watching my golden friends near me , and afar 

sitting in a bed of cushiony cotton wool 

above trees which sing sensitive tunes to me 

and my curious comfortable mind 


I am a star 

made of shimmering soft sand 

dreamy diamonds and the shining sun

    A fine write Rose.
    Now I'm rather busy. That star seems cold at night. I get in my rocket out, go and collect it each night; bring it back to Earth and put it to bed in the warm; then return it each morning to the skies.
    How do I get time to do anything else? And what about all the other stars?
    Much more of this and I'll go potty! lol.

      Some evenings are warmer than others ... lol ... Iโ€™m sure spring and summer evenings the stars would be ok lol . In the winter and autumn they would definitely feel colder .

      That would be nice if you . Iโ€™m sure if the star had feelings and didnโ€™t like the cold .., that it would feel grateful although maybe it wouldnโ€™t like you taking it away from its home - who knows

      Thanks for the comment ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚

      You're a star. Fine write with much metaphors to create an image of your time awake.

        Thankyou ๐Ÿ™‚ Iโ€™m not sure that I was talking about me ...
        I was just thinking about how a โ€œ star โ€œ might feel . Although it could be taken that way ...

        That sense of peace stirring within me ... sometimes itโ€™s there

        Thanks for the comment

        Glad you like this

          Thank you for a fine poem. I reread it and saw the star among the stars. That's you among the glinting stars of writers.

        • rrodriguez

          Indeed, the star stays awake during the night. I reread your poem and saw the star among the stars. Still this a fine poem.

            Thankyou ๐Ÿ™‚ stars are pretty . They look peaceful and full of light ..

            We all want to feel that sense of peace and feel a lightness within ourselves . Nobody wants to feel weighed down ..,

                A fine poem Rose. Not too long to get the meaning of. I was a little out of breath after reading stanza 2 ~ maybe slight punctuation will enchance the stanza, say (a coma?) between 'sky' & 'and' in line 3.
                Kind regards, Alan
