A Blanket of Stardust

“Stardust is falling!” I heard my son cry, his small precious face looking up at the sky. “Stardust?” I echoed, and thought how my son had such a vivid imagination. “Yes, Mommy. Look!” he said, taking my hand. He led me outside; the sky I then scanned. I felt an enchantment, for what did I see? Myriads of stars shone down brightly at me. And the harder I stared, the more that it seemed the heaven above was like something we dreamed. The sky was a forest, and each star - a tree - was blazing in splendor against ebony. A celestial wildfire spread there overhead. “See, Mommy, see?” my dear child then said. No dust falling down from those stars did I see, but his eyes now looked downward ecstatically. When I followed his gaze, my shock was so sweet. A blanket of stardust I found at our feet! Written by Andrea Dietrich, 12/26/12 for the Blanket of Stars Contest of Gail Angel Doyle

Beach Blanket Bingo

Beach Blanket Bingo (The Fab Five)

B etty Lou, beautiful Katherine, and
E leanor, Nellie Sue and Bethany
A ll playing Bingo, on blankets in sand,
C hatted away, happy girls by the sea,
H eaven-sent sun beaming high in the sky.

B ethany said, “Girls, suck tummies in.
L ook. Over there is a really cute guy!
A lso, we really should show him some skin!”
N ellie Sue said, “And he has four friends too!”
K atherine quickly adjusted her hair.
E leanor said, “Girls, you know what to do.”
T hey took off their beach wraps and made those men stare!

B ob and his friends asked to join the game.
I n minutes each lady was paired with a guy.
N o worries. Just good times. Always the same.
G olden girls shine like the sun in the sky.
O ld ladies, still young at heart, the fab five!

Beach Blanket Bingo

B raving the sweltering summer sun
E ngaging in laughter and having fun
A way from parents and dull city life
C hasing dreams without the pressures of strife
H anging together on white sandy beach

B eyond tides only dreams can reach
L athered up with tanning butter
A lone with true love sends heart a flutter       
N othing is better than moment alone
K nowing salty sea spray is all your own
E ven with night’s cooling sea song
T he foaming waves, slap sandy shore, lifelong 

B eneath overcast crimson sky
I hear the hunting seagulls’ cry
N othing more waning than his call
G rowing ever dim against ocean squall
O ccassional lone porpoise leaps nearby….

"Under The Blanket"

The sweet taste of your morning kiss...
For under the blanket a mystery of bliss...

Our toes tingle to what's hidden beneath....
As our hearts sing while we cling to the sheets....

A Blanket Of Clay

Violet blue waters
Against the greenist trees
Cares float in the clouds
Looking over the scene

Bluist sky filled
With freedom's breeze
Cares gone_now unseen
A frame to take and freeze

Stop and touch smooth driftwood
Sit on its body reminisc
Lean on its strong arm_strength miss
See birds enjoy this lovely perch

Remanents of yesterday's lunch
Fertilizer to wash away
Nutrition for seaweed another day
Birds of feather flock this way

This scene has lifted
A blanket of clay
Now there is joy
For the rest of the day

Beach Blanket Bingo

Beneath the umbrella rainbow canopy,
Elvis croons from an old man’s radio.
As he smears lotion on his nose and knees,
Children hop by screaming in stereo
Hot hot hot! The sand’s hot on my feet!

Blasting sand onto sun-bathing girls,
Laughing boys race to the sea.
Avid readers get lost in their worlds,
Not noticing the shade retreat.
Kite flyers whirl and twirl,
Enjoying the breeze on the beach,
That causes the beach towels to curl.

Buried treasure inspires kids
Into digging deep in the sand.
Names are called when it’s time to quit;
Grown-ups leave, relaxed and tanned.
Optimistic for tomorrow’s plan, of more beach blanket bliss! 


Received 3rd place in the "Beach Blanket Bingo" Contest

A Blanket of stardust

The sunset dazzles with its raspberry hue
And dances the Samba upon stirring waves
That copy from the skies’ patches of midnight blue
While warm winds of late summer caress my face

The noise and crowd thins and the world is now ours
Even tireless seagulls retire as further south we sail
Onward to the quiet cove where we’d play for hours
Anticipating no intrusions, birthday suits will prevail

Far away are mundane cares, left to another world
No room here for worries; all are tossed overboard
A weekend of devotion when only love unfurls
Is a special time of bonding, always on overload

Two hearts beating madly, as persistent love calls
Entwined, we lie beneath the low hung, yellow moon
While in the hush, soft sighs escape as gently waves fall
And a blanket of stardust burst above, as we spoon!

A BLANKET TO DREAM ON

Blue and wide is the blanket we have spread absorbing the sun's heat,
Enamored as Romeo and Juliet we feel what they felt: an increasing heartbeat;
Anticipating soft touches, followed by ardent kisses until moonlight arrives... 
Cuddled as they were, we ignore the glances of everyone taken by surprise.
Hushed words must remain whispers, if we are to satisfy our sensual needs. 
Bottles filled with messages are brought in by rolling waves, is ours still unread?
Lovely seagulls gather on splashing rocks, watching a lonely lady who weeps,  
Another heartbreak for someone who was happy in life, now completely sad;
Knowing the pain of betrayal, she will learn by error not to trust anyone again.    
Enticed by desire, we must roll back onto that soft blanket and revive romance, 
Totally unaware of our surroundings, we lose ourselves and become intense;    
Beholding what others never do, we know that faithful lovers always win.   
There's exceeding joy, an indefinite yearning to explore love in ways so new,  
Neither the distant stars nor the close moon refuse to shine on a blanket for two;
Grand as ever is their presence, luminous and breath-taking is their gleam... 
Onward they will slowly move, while we still embrace and continue to dream.
