Starlight As sunset fades from pink to violet And twilight skies show trees in silhouette Our heaven's open vault of diamonds shine In awestruck twinkling glimmers so divine. Reflections from these stars upon the sea Share a peaceful grace with humanity. Moon with its companion Venus, not far Displays bright light but neither are a star. Oh Shooting star, though brief, how bright your tail That blazes sparkling lights within your trail. Star struck am I to view your awesome sight Within deep dark indigo skies of night. You bedazzle so my romantic heart Though light years we may be so far apart. You charge my ardent senses with delight. I long to see a glimpse of you each night. My star struck days I know will never end As your glow and my passion for you blend. Oh planetary wonders that you are 'Tis God that has created every star. 3-20-20 ~Poem of the Day March 23, 2020~ Thank you Poetry Soup Team and PS members for this honor. ~6th Place~ Premiere Contest: A Star's Heartbeat Sponsored by: Chantelle Anne Cooke ~3rd Place~ STRAND CHOICE M,any form,any theme Sponsor Brian Strand

Wonderful poem, Connie. I truly enjoyed. The descriptions are both accurate observationally and stirring. If you get a chance, check out comet Swan (might be visible in the next week or so). Or just enjoy the night sky. Best to you, Eric.

Oh Connie. I am so happy to see this on the winners list. It twinkles like starlight and truth - "'Tis God that has created every star." The sky would look somehow empty without "every star." Congratulations on another win with this lovely poem! Blessings my friend.

There are not many things which can surpass a clear starlit sky, Connie, and this poem is a beautiful captivating dedication to it. I love your imagery! [As an aside...Venus and the Moon are to be complimented for observing social distancing in these troubled Covid-19 times!!] Congratulations on reaching no1 spot in the Best New Poems list. ~ Warm regards // paul

Up near the top again I see, Connie...and why not? Lovely poem! You always did write as if splashing lots of vibrant colours was a prerequisite; that is what I find so enjoyable about your poetry -- this lavish application of colourful and bold pen strokes! With warmest regards. :) john

Thank you Andrea. That picked up my spirits a lot. I have been so worried about little Cosette. I have gotten four HM since March second from him so I know how you feel. I never really know what he will enjoy. There are some really great poems in his contest so I imagine he has trouble deciding. I know I would. Keep safe xxoo

You captured the romantic mood beautifully, Connie, and the imagery is amazing. Best wishes in Brian's contest and congrats on your success in Chantelle's. A fave for me. Love, Carolyn
