Sparkly, shiny, and oh so bright
Streaking across the sky tonight
Wish I may, wish I might
Forever hold you in my sight
I wish a thousand wishes to you
Hoping all my dreams come true
Don't you leave me, please just stay
I have many more wishes I'd like to say
I wish for the sun to rise each day
I wish for the clouds to blow away
I wish for the trees to grow so tall
I wish for the baby birds not to fall
I wish that this world wasn't so hard
I wish my heart was no longer scarred
I wish for the day that you are found
For that day my Queen will be crowned
I wish for hope and peace and love
I wish to you, oh shooting star above
Virgin snow sparkles in the darkest hour
as stardust dances with celestial power.
Silently it rains upon mother earth
giving witness to such an idyllic birth.
A fawn and doe now break the glaze
like tiny spoons upon crème brulees.
Below Polaris they prance and snort,
for they seem to know the time is short.
For such a night is a rare event,
as blue light above is heaven sent.
Wondrous luminescent tranquility
trumps any earthly poet’s ability.
Now the first rays pierce the frigid night
and Orion’s bow soon fades to light.
White carpet dulls now without the luster
of a nocturnal painter, the starlight duster.

Armano the Auracano of Rock Star fame
Will never be singing on his stage again
A fan. a critter, or even a possum
Has taken his life, he will no longer blossom
He was a handsome dude, tall and preened
With shiny red rustic feathers, and did the girls scream
A newspaper reporter asked his manager Dane
It must be hard for you, as you will miss him playing
Yes i will, things will never be the same
But another star will be born, to look after his dames
From a cloudless frost crisp sky one star shines supremely out
Diminishing all other stars in the slate black sky about
It light s a path across a flat calm bay a road my soul must walk
To distant friends in distant lands to whom I wish to talk
To those in need I send you gifts of sustenance faith and love
To those in terror and in pain, I give hope and a dove
Those whose loss turns fair heart black you get leave to grieve
You who now face life alone pure friendship you receive
As my mind walks that star lit path my thoughts they are with you
Who on my unworthy life your great gifts of love did strew
Pain from my old frame you shared and my loneliness did cease
On you I wish health and happiness, love, luck and peace
My valentine's a star above
that leaves me all alone.
It seems to know I'm happier
when left upon my own.
At night it sparkles brightly
and holds me to my stare.
My eyes left feeling helpless
as my lungs are filled with air.
My valentine's a star above
as faithfull as I've known.
But not for being a wonderer;
for aligning God's own throne.
Beautiful light that lasted for long
Your lightening shine suppress the cloud
Brilliant Beauty from coast to coast
Your brighter shine rule my world
My lovely kids love painting in your midst
Cos your presence add meaning to their paint
Myself as well stock under your bountiful
Likewise my firm, my wife roam through you
Your fins and flippers eat the sea
But your dominant serve the plant
That is why I love to kiss you
Cos you never demand without supply
My sunshine, you are the haven
That shine my home and my coats.
You closed yours eyes before the crash..
We woke in places that couldn't last..
Blinded by fables that we hoped were true..
Now our hands let go as your star flew..
In your own sky without my light..
Your star shines all too bright..
Till another day when our moons are one..
I'll sit to the side making sounds of none..
For Brian's contest
She looks dazzling in her black gown
On occasion she wears a sparkling crown
She protects me from prying eyes
There`s no need for pretense or lies
She sustains me with her beauteous light
Caresses me in the heat-forsaken night
She tends to my insatiable fire inside
By her light I find delight in new-found insight
She hears my silent screams and
Listens, knowing what it all means
She`s game and with her pleasures generous
I wish to stay, but her dark ways are treacherous
When I ask for more, she cracks a smile
Saying, “Farewell, now rest for a while”
A wayward star has lost it's place
Amidst the vastness known as space
Too close to earth it's path did lead
This shooting star for us to see
Midnight has come to drape her robe
Of darkness over this side of the globe.
Smooth, like velvet, it muffles all sound
Save for the hem touching the ground.
And from its deep folds, bright jewels shine forth:
Lyra, Orion, the Star of the North.
Such riches never before seen on Earth
Sparkle these diamonds of unmeasured worth.
Midnight displays her riches untold;
To her stars are dust. How would she treat gold?
