Starlit Diva

My mind has wings and wants to fly into galaxies where stars streak. Aloft on whispers and a sigh a hint of stardust on my cheek. Into galaxies where stars streak northern lights' neon gives me flair, a hint of stardust on my cheek starlit diva with solar hair. Northern lights' neon gives me flair through cosmic currents I do wing, starlit diva with solar hair enjoying my celestial fling. Through cosmic currents I do wing aloft on whispers and a sigh, enjoying my celestial fling my mind has wings and wants to fly. ~ 4th Place ~ Contest: End July Premiere 2017 Sponsor: Brian Strand Susan Ashley July 23, 2017

This is flat-out wonderful. I love the flow and how one stanza is "wedded" to the next. Also, the imagery is nothing short of magnificent. The repetitive "Aloft on whispers and a sigh" is a jewel. Standing ovation! Hugs, always, Paul

Hi John, thank you for reading my poem and for leaving your wonderful comment. I love writing pantoums because I like the repetition of lines throughout the poem. Maybe I'll read one from you someday.., I hope so :)

Hi Greg, I appreciate you comment so very much! Like you, I love to read or write about celestial subjects but I have a dark side too lol! I just posted one tonight called Fated Hell and it's pretty dark. Please read if you have a chance and let me know what you think... Thank you Greg and again, congrats to you! :)

Hi Akkina, thank you so much for your response to my poem and the fav. After reading your response I re-edited the words 'flair and hair' in the poem. I think it's makes it stronger and more whimsical... Thank you! :)

May I barrow a little of your stardust, Susan:) A well written and fun pantoum!
