Below The Stars (Poetry Collage) - Poem by Velvet Astraea Dido

first move: white

peaceful evening
little birds singing
middle of ploughed
desolated mudfield

i see..
plants start to appear again
nature smiles
at everything.

second move: black

nature smiles indeed
as she sees
Our Love
thus -
making birds sing
the sweetest song
letting the flowers bloom..

even at night.

third move: white

blue skies
feather shaped clouds
dreaming away
with the handgliders
i see

fourth move: black

the horizon
hides you in vein
through cold things
cross the sea
towards you
as the biggest stars
look above us.

fifth move: white

warm summer night
fading light
purple blue
with the opposite
a bright halfmoon
at one far away star.

sixth move: black

sprinkled love
and sleepy dust
on me
dreamt of the sea..

seventh move: white

i'm diving in now
in the faint sweet flavor
of a nearby tree
through my window
and thoughts of you.

of your smile..
which paint
the brightest star.

draw.. life is neither black nor white.
