Author's Notes:  This particular write, entitled:  "Love Star Night" is a "Accentual Meter" type of poem.  It appears in my new book under an original release date of February 13, 2015.  (I classified this poem in PoetrySoup under "Free Verse" since this type of accentual metered write is not normally listed under the PS classification pick-list.)  In this poem, I describe two people in love walking under a "Love Star Night."  It's during this walk that the man and woman stop, embrace, kiss, and acknowledge their love and the oneness of being together on " . . . this love star night."  (Gary Bateman -- May 5, 2015) (Accentual Meter)

Love Star Night
We walk in love 
under the stars 
star night pure.

Our love’s real
your touch warm			
so inviting now
star night white.

We stop walking
embrace as one               	   	
kissing deeply
with passion
our souls now one.

We gaze skyward 
see stars so bright		
such radiance pure				                                                
this love star night.

Hello Again Sharon!! Thanks again for the 7 + FAV!! I do recommend that you order a copy of my book "Conversations with My Muse," from or Barnes & Noble. It was released on April 9th and has all of my poetry in it up to February 2015. (The paperback version is the best buy!!) It's a great reference book too. I should mention too that I've contracted with my publisher to do a second book which will be entitled: "Storyteller - A Book of Selected Poetry and Short Stories." I've already started my next group of poems (which will appear first draft Poetry Soup) + my first short story of at least the 6 or 7 stories I have planned. (Publication Date for this second book is well-over one year out.) Best Wishes, Gary

Gary, you paint your poetry smoothly, as if red sable bristles were pouring forth colors from the heart. Beautifully.
