The Stars - Poem by Lyndsay Ayliffe

I see the stars
Shining in the pale moonlight
I see the stars
Shimmering on the ocean sea

It’s a warm summer night
I sit on the beach
I feel the sand touching my body
Slowly grabbing it between my toes

I look to the sky
It reminds me of safe times
The sound of the waves crashing soothe me
I’m staying here

I see the stars
They are not shy tonight
I see the stars
The stars are my home

    The first and last stanzas parallel each other in a very satisfying way. The parallel encloses the poem with a quiet confidence in things around you that the middle stanzas elaborate with a pleasing intimacy. Confidence and intimacy are the two feelings I take away. The line that I like best is: The stars are not shy tonight. (Report) Reply
