The Stars

The Stars they lead me,
a misty sparkling trail;
The brightest 'GO' sign;
Streaking hope across the sky,
pointing to my heart's desire.

Within the Stars

Our feelings were high On this cold, dark, star-filled night I ogle your eyes You form beauty within them They twinkle like the white stars The moon shows its face As we walk down the black hill Letting our hands touch Our feelings surely brought joy As the sky winks at our love The stars have their love Ones that shined that gorgeous night Romance brought by stars And the moon has its power Love enters both of our minds

Swinging on a Star Tankas-3

“Swinging on A Star”-1

Oh “Bethlehem Star” 
Bright multi-faceted points
Still shimmer from far
Above my old aching joints
Reminding me of His love.

“Swinging On A Star”-2

Diamonds on blue
Yours glimmering by the moon
Is “Venus”…still true...
Holding your heart, as I croon
Sweet love songs in moonbeam hues.

“Swinging On A Star”-3

Catching golden love,
These moonbeams in a jar,
You watch from above
As if swinging on a star--
My "Mem'ry”…my love…you are.

Swinging On A Star

My tears have bought you
The brightest star in the sky.
I fancy you there,
Starring among the angels
As you did for me on Earth..

By: Joyce Johnson

For my son "a star on Earth and a star in Heaven."

Tanka 9

there are too few stars
to count living here -
I toss and turn all night
thinking the world is less
beautiful than it is

The Star Shows the Way

Wise men see the star Shining brightly in the east. Here is Bethlehem. The star is showing the way. The Savior is born today.
