Treasure Island

Nyles Peele

(March,6,1993 / Virgenia)

Stars


I always wonder how far away you really are,
whether if your still burning with intense heat,
or just a calm luminance glow from your previous being.

You always keep me reaching towars the dark night sky for something more,
I can stay awake for hours trying to count all of you with you wonderful glow,
You can be as guiding ans helpful as the North Star,
or as blinding and brutal as our sun.

You dot the night sky some large, some small.
You paint images in the sky such as The Big Dipper or Orians Belt.
You reach out through the endless distance of space,
But no matter how close or how far,
there will neer be as many as you,
the star

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
