Star Dust

(Uh... For all I know I could have been born in 2111 / Loonytown (It's an awesome place, right between Candyland and the Strawberry Forest))

Candles


We are all stars,
Stars in the night,
In the night of our world,
Of our world that needs some brightening,

We are all the color yellow,
The color yellow in the rainbow,
In the rainbow that flies,
That flies across the sky,

We are all glowing,
Glowing for the world to see,
To see our radiance,
Our radiance and humbleness,

We are all smiles,
Smiles in a crowd,
In crowd filled with confusion,
With confusion and hate,

We are all candles,
Candles with flickering flames,
With flickering flames that will lead the way,
That will lead the way to heaven.

    We r all flickering in the crowded space here down on Earth....Just awaiting for our candled wax to melt then leave us free to travel and soar up to Heaven, nearer the Sun, Nearer the star, Nearer to God and Jesus... For we all are crowded down here.More space in Heaven's uncluttered arena of our now accepted peace filled being redone by God.

    Great poem-God bless all poets-MJG. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
