Walking on the Stars

WALKING ON THE STARS


Waves break white
Far out behind the tide line.
The summer wind, moves the light night clouds
As the stars slide down to touch the trawler lights.
And the sky
A dark blue tent all around
Is pegged to the sea.
Whisper wind
Moves through dry sand grass
Soft on bare skin
Like fine cotton sheets.
All around the sky, the sea
And the sand a mirror lake, reflects the stars
Shining phosphorous in the dark.
Our footprints deep on the sky
We are walking on the stars.

Jenny Magrath
Fraser Island 1988

    You gilded the dark ocean with a phosphorescent sheen. Love how you spun the natural images with a cerebral charm. An aesthetically-endearing scene!

    For some reason an email from poetry soup meant for you and your poem came to me so I am answering so that you will see the other answer also. This is truly a beautiful poem. I am glad I was led to it. Love, Joyce
