Stars


Stars shimmering
Stars glowing
Stars never ending
Showing their brilliance to us
Shadows of darkness creeping in between them
Slowly time moves on

Stars are dying
Seeing them dim
Shuddering masses
Spinning and spinning
Shown what power they have
Seeing them pulse
THAT is the stars true form

    tbh rebecca r kinda took the word right out of my mouth. this is a really beautiful poem. it is nice just to stop and look up on a clear night to see the slight twinkles of light that frame the world skies. (Report) Reply

    Excellent poem, I feel like you are a twin soul, you take the time to appreciate the beauty nature has to offer, and that is a rare thing...10+ marks! : D (Report) Reply

    This is a very good poem about the stars and their true form, according to Tobias Gray.: P This poem says a lot, and is a good tribute to them. There is one error though, and that is in the first stanza, in the 4th line. You have 'there' and it should be 'their'. But I can find nothing wrong with this poem, except that one mistake. Thank you for sharing, Tobias. WRITE ON! ! ! ! !

    Love & hugs,

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
