Stairway to the Stars

stairway to the stars celestial light beckons me no puddles overflow with tears my life’s silent movie reruns in my mind not a loved one left behind those I cherish wait for me lingering in paradise below the Earth loses color even the pyramids Eiffel Tower Broadway lights fade to those still confined in the worldly realm no legacy I leave just a kiss that carries rapidly vanishing memories my final farewell
*Written September 4, 2014, by Carolyn Devonshire For Guatami’s “The Poet II – Poetry Contest” Theme: Leave you a kiss

    A stairway that we are all bound to climb! A metaphysical glimpse into eternity, dear Carolyn, marvelously expressed! Inspirational! Thank you!

    UPON seeing this title I couldn't wait to read it! I was looking for Led Zeppelin plus a few stairs and what I found was soo much better, Jimmy Page is overrated compared to Carolyn's PAGE! This is EPIC as all hell n heaven mixed into one terrific Space Cake Cookie! This poem helps us rediscover REAL meaning of life and beyond, shredding fears and tears of the unknown and adding value to those passed on! To my Faves. 7 heaven!

    this is a lovely poem. i'm not a spiritual person but i was very drawn to your depiction of the "celestial light" and especially the beautiful description of the legacy you leave behind as described in the final verse. well done!
