My Sidewalk

My sidewalk exclaims Off its own wet surface The lights do reflect beyond its water As if the stars carry its empty planets Holding ice within Its own reflection Red the light keeps the human condition Allows me to stop the confusion outside Rain does illuminate Brings glorious high The universe doesn’t understand complexity Of the reflection of light off the sidewalk Calm presents itself Reality reigns The stars above don’t comprehend us And our delight at such simple things First hand innocence The light rebounds up The sky infiltrates the heaven’s ideals Softly the pallets carry hope throughout Nothing has a light Like stars that illumine Onto my sidewalk Russell Sivey

    Dear Rusty, You are so clever. I can feel the steam rising from your sidewalk in the day and the reflections of the stars at night. What an imaginative mind you have! Always so unique and creative. Sending hugs to you, Carolyn

    Hi Russel. the stars don't comprehend us. Nor does anything of life comprehend the breath of craziness that we human beings show towards the planet. Yours is a wonderful poem my friend, written so very beautifully. Loved it......Peter

    Russell, you make the world more beautiful than ever... You are an artist that paints with his pen, a world of nostalgia like the famous artist Thomas Kinkade. You deserve a standing ovation for this one... Hugs and love Gail
