Stardust Artist

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.

    James! This is very beautiful! This is the second poem I've read that I would have placed higher, but we all have different ideas of what we look for in a poem. Anyway, you know as I that this is awesome! Always, Annalise

    such a subjective thing judging poetry is. I am honored to even be on the list, places aren't important. I've written long before I was entering contests, and I'll write after them as well. It's all fun and good!
