A Letter to a star

Little may my love sound, yet a bright star I do love, Stella, Who in the center of the sky, being lulled in her mother’s lap, does blink and wink on the sly to express her divine love. To express my mortal love, I wink and blink slyly, yet she may not clearly see how desperately I do love. Tell me a way to say my love, to show my love, mortal love, to Stella, my brightest star. Are earth and sky so far, so I can’t send a message of love to my brightest star, in the place of genuine love, Stella, my brightest star? I have no skills to create a cloud of romance, as Kalidasa, a great poet, once did, so I’ll make a little, so little kite to send my letter of love to my brightest star, Stella.
I published my second collection of poems: "Love, Lust & Dust" in 2018. Publisher: Sarasavi Publishers, Colombo. Oct. 15, 2020 Have You Published Poetry Contest Contest Sponsor: Line Gauthier
