The Last Night Star

We lie together under the willow
I hold you in my arms and i do see
The light of God’s own flickering sunlight
On the horizon is winking on we

And in the heart of love’s own fiery blaze
A single star in Heaven’s sky shines bright
My Love together let us make our wish
Before we see its last flicker of the light..

Cuddled up close we watch the star be gone
To its peaceful sleep as sun does arise
We know again our stars once more shall come
To take their peaceful place within night skies.

And in the sky we can see from afar
Our tiny twinkling friend the last night star.

Diamond in the Sky

A dead star that inspired this poem--the companion of the star 55 Cancri, in the constellation of Cancer the Crab--has now shrunk to only about twice the size of earth yet is extraordinarily massive, leading astronomers to conclude that its surface and outer crust consist entirely of diamond.

In slumber now and thence to dream of space-time’s stirred and curving sweep, where stellar furies set agleam the velvet thrall of endless deep. Here among a billion suns, solo Klieg cued nascent spark. Ensuing life o'er eon runs ere treading path of torpid dark. Adorned in crystal, its bequest— fusion’s fire did else abate— bejeweled then, this orb compressed, fields of diamonds lie and wait. Yet perish need to search the endless skies— diamonds sparkle here in lovely eyes.

Star Struck

Many nights you’ve graced my sight
fair Orion, hunter and groom to the abyss,
and yet it would seem an eternity
before we would meet and kiss.

Bought you’d be, and brought to me
by the grace of He who waits.
So, when I die my heart can rise
upon your valor’s brace.

He’d rename Hatsya’s famed
so my soul could light the way.
Dearbhla true poetess of love
‘pon Orion’s sword held sway.

And up I’d rise at my demise
to crest the sky and space.

Dream Keeper

The moon and stars, together scheme
to trespass, searching through the air
until they find my window sill  -
Caressing me with fragile streams
their fingers, stroking, tussled hair
as tender as a mother will

As if to keep my dreams alive
they keep a watch against the dawn
and calm me in my restless sleep -
I'll let the gentle night contrive
a plan to help me sail upon
a cloud, where dreams are mine to keep

The moon and stars together scheme
As if to keep my dreams alive

Dusk Interplayed

See the light, the empowering red light Covering our bodies it does imbue Orange, yellow caress my every sight Dusk at its best surrounding our delight Clouds impose beauty, coalescing you The sliver of the moon imparts with might The North Star shines brightly in the night sky Where dusk just slightly starts to fade away Surely the intriguing night does imply Clouds fly through as we breathe in its essence Now turned silver and nearing dark I say Dusk is a memory in our presence See the light, the empowering red light The North Star shines brightly in the night sky Contest: Cornish Sonnet Sponsor: Craig Cornish 3/11/2013

Bright And Morning Star

The grace of all He is be with you all
as certain as the end, the promised love
comes quickly as a thief, to bring the fall
of what the world's become, and singing of.

Behold how quickly comes, from Alphas flame;
as naught can end unless it has begun;
the light of one who's called a holy name
will light Jeruselum without the sun.

These words were said--to write--Omega's near.
And all who can will find the narrow way,
as prophesied for all the world to hear,
and then the bride says, come, this is the day.

Those hearing all will come, from near and far,
to Davids' own, a bright and morning star.

Last Breath

You were a shining Star.
Few of many in the sky.
Looking up so very high,
Not knowing why you are.

Close and set you are far.
Spinning flames  knot a tie,
I note a pattern just like pi.
Colliding with me you spar.

So burn it up and burn away,
Sow your heart upon a plane.
Chart your distance in the clay.
Burn it all up then call it sane.

The explosion in the sky is His death.
All burned up He has no last breath.

Shooting Star

Admiring one another from afar
Your fantasy inspired my light to shine
You were the moon, I was a shooting star
Recalling now when paths of ours entwined

I danced with your reflection on the tides
Played hide and seek with shadows in the trees
You looked my way as I came passing by
To flash a smile at me seductively

It saddens me to think how few our days
My love for you I'll keep for times of doubt
I'm grateful that we met along the way
After they flash old stars quickly burn out

If future stars should pass this way again
Remember when we laughed and danced as friends

4 Star General

What reasoning is there to study war
and then not turn them loose, in violent rage,
to bring catastrophe forevermore
to near-life who should be put in a cage?

the book of truth from histories remiss,
they laboured with, at West Point every night!
Napoleanic in their sacred bliss
could we deny what is a warriors right?

The stars upon their shoulders, bear with me,
they'll bury every dove in their own waste,
and those not dead will raise the flag and plea,
for Generals to save them in great haste!

       You'll not have any part of them until
         your only choice, is turn them loose to kill.

Annual days in our University existed before too, only in annals,
Until the day, she on the ramp thrilled our hearts that came to the ears;
We had ‘Abbey Road on the River’; we lived in our souls and became ears,
That heard the first time ‘unheard melodies’ reverberating through Lit annals.

The Nightingale of India would’ve left her oriole and put her in musical panels;
The roaring Moor would’ve left Desdemona to live, riveting his ears for years,
The brooding Ruth would’ve left her diffidence to dance sprightly for years,
To the thrill of her voice, sounding end to sittings of juries, forever in annals.

She could’ve sung ‘they’re gonna make a big star out of me,’
But, that would’ve rivaled the great Beatles; she could’ve her ‘Jai Ho’ 
That would’ve made Mozart of Madras again dedicate glory to Him.

Lyrics she required not, for, it’s in the listeners’ glee;
Lyres she required not, her voice throbs humans in harmony, robbing ego;
Life is un-lived, if you have no ears for my singing star, not even Him.

Little Mountain Star

Little Mountain Star

Little Mountain Star, how dare you fall to my feet from afar!
You should be dancing across galaxies warm and happy.
You have an attitude that blemishes when you are sappy.
Carry yourself up to the Northern winds and plant your Star!

Take me with you but bring me back with a great spar.
Hot or cold you must not ever get too snoopy or snappy.
Up! Up! Up! I tell you to rise like your big daddy pappy!
Little Mountain Star hear me, oh hear me plead this par.

You are too big,
Much too little,
I will take a swig!
I stand in the middle!

Conquer me or defeat me, I will adore you forever.
I will stand between this to and fro until whenever!

Promising Sky

An enormous full moon
Filters through the tree limbs
There is no feeling of gloom
Even though darkness swims

Stars twinkle with delight
Amid the cloudless sky
There is no need for fright
A clear pathway is nigh

No photograph could reflect
The splendor of this moment
With only the night to connect
My heart with the sky’s movement	

Moon and stars remind me why
I so very much love the sky

Guardians of the Third Sphere

Electromagnetic swirling exploding gasses
The watchers watch the nomadic masses
Since time immemorial this has been done
Master Guardians on the Temples of the Sun

Majestic giants who show their might
Protectors of the realms and infinite light
Photons of Love that cascade to earth
Plasmatic radiance creating life and rebirth

Morning sunshine in fields of blue
Autotrophic organisms are praising you
Their Love through light in all the places
As we feel their warmth upon are smiling faces

Ultraviolet luminance that has become
Spiritual Beings on the surface of the Sun.

As I lay me down to nourish my sleep,
I am Star-bound with my heavenly light.
I can touch one then two come into sight.
I search midnight skies for a Star I keep.

I pray Thee Lord my Soul to seek!
I pray Thee Lord my great Sunlight!
I pray Thee Lord my only Moonlight.
I pray Thee Lord my Grace I speak!

It’s just so bountiful,
Down to Earth Justice!
So, So, So, plentiful!
I just can’t scratch a surface!

Star-Bound I am stuck in this traffic jam!
Star-Bound I am just as I truly, truly am!

An immortal bubble

An immortal bubble it was when you
And I were on the edge of getting lost
In some intense musk of our heat and frost
As immortal moments danced in the dew
Giving shape to birds from starry stillness
Underneath the scented sparks of diamonds
Intoxicated with browning almonds 
Sprinkling crimson splashes on melting face

And green apples in our waiting ocean
Relaxing the knots in a pink freedom
In lilac rhythm ridding all our notion
Of eternity as time sans fathom 
What matters is the intense disruption
In which the Himalayan moments come

Observe the light that shines so bright,
Urge heart to show a bliss profound;
Rapture knows sight as truth shapes flight.
Make moments glow on sacred grounds,
Obtain the peace of mind that calms;
Reason keeps still where silence moves,
Note ample ease in whispered psalm;
Instruct bold will to forge clear grooves,
Now is that time to play and dance;
Glimpse the right way to journey far.
Sense joy string chimes in affluent trance,
Touch sensuous play with brilliant star;
Abide fine grace in realms of play,
Restore grand trace love's middle way.

a spark of memory

night after  night
dream after dream
I go to this place 
I've never been

how did I get here
where is this place
a spark of memory 
a familiar face

a sense of belonging
entwined with a heartfelt embrace
amongst night cold pause
whilst ancient stars grace

day after day
night after night
I cherish these dreams
Granted in starlight

Topping The Star Charts

Voyager 1’s “The Sounds Of Earth”

Eleven billion miles from the sun
a record, golden when it left these parts,
a runaway hit on Voyager One,
at Ophiuchus, sure to top the charts,
will introduce Mozart to other stars,
not to mention Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode”.
The knock-offs sold in alien bazaars
will knock their socks off or at least it should
make them extend their eyestalks in surprise.
They’ll soon begin to learn to sing along
to whales recorded and the baby’s cries —
adepts might even master Earth’s birdsong.
Should Beethoven not prove to be their fave,
Then Guan PingHu’s GuQin could be their rave.

Revealing to Me

Laying down on my back I look straight up Sky’s filled with small dots and the moon’s a cup Specks are bright with a very brilliant white They are awesome to see, a gorgeous sight The stars bring an aura to me with life No problems in the world I see, no strife I relax when the dots are before me Superior is their glow, completely As I lay on the ground I do notice This sky harbors peace within its darkness For the moon and the stars sure envelope The unmoving specks of light develop The stars move me in my heart seeing true Revealing to me how much I love you

Lone Star Love

He, your father,
Gave you green eyes,
Emerald isles,
To carry you miles,
His obvious love,
Still shines in your smile.

She, the sweet rose
Your lips were made of,
Carried you close
On shoulders above,
She taught you to reach, 
Such was her lone star love.

I am the mirror, a child like you,
Come and little closer, and I will too.

The Milky Way Watcher

It was past the hour, and I saw your picture hanging from the side of my door.
Its getting colder outside and I sit here vaguely thinking about how you soar.
If there were a million moons closer to earth id figure we would have a Martian. 
If they came to earth I’m sure we could give them something that’s a harshen. 

I held your smooth hand and nothing has ever been the same 
Lost in all the calamity of this world, and not even knowing your name. 
As I breathe in your charismatic scent, I feel you near. 
Beside me in the silence of the hushed stars of this night we fear. 

Flying a spacecraft into the dark abyss can consume someone with a single swallow. 
Jagged craters move faster than the speed of light and destroyed the Apollo.
This isn’t a cartoon like the Jetsons, and I do not get my own dog-named Astro.
The only reason why I’m up here getting paid and risking my life is because of Castro. 

The Milky Way watcher is one of the loneliest jobs anyone can ask for when looking in the sky. 
Time to watch the world pass in a blink of an eye

Rendezvous On A Star

Let me carry you to a waiting star,
With this kiss on your lips, we’ll reach that far
Leave behind all that encumbers your soul
On pristine whiteness with me take a stroll

Hold my hand as I lead you to a place
Where you ‘ll be blanketed in love’s embrace
There is no echo and no living sound
As you and I tumble down to the ground

This rendezvous star is for you and me
There’s no one else our love making to see
We sprinkle stardust as we toss and turn
Temperatures rise as the star starts to burn

The small earth is millions of miles away…
On this throbbing star, forever…please  stay…

A Tree Sitting in the Snow

There once was a tree sitting in the snow,
Its branches dusted white, content to be.
Shafts of moonlight shinning on it below,
Then appeared a star on top of the tree.
It was sent from above without a word
To herald a birth, with the three wise men. 
No footsteps were seen, and no voices heard,
Appearing each year in that snow packed glen.
It shined ever brightly on Christmas Eve,
Thus bringing joy and hope for all to see.
After that it would fade away and leave,
Its message left behind to set men free.

The tree stood tall, somehow it always knew,
The star would appear, as if right on cue.

a couple's stroll

above an autumn's moonlit sky
'twas there in flight, a hurtled star
then visions land as from afar
what wants 'came focused on mind's eye
was it shining gold that called?
a better man it's left enthralled
fame and power? the skill to jest?
so many dreams, thy brain was mauled
but out from selfish musings sung
a thought so single, bright, and true!
on crisp night air I felt it hung
it melted over, then I knew
for next to me my lover strode
i wished for us a sweet abode

STAR-for Ann

I did not plan,
To meet and fall,
In Love with You!
It Just Happened!
As some things do.
What can I say?

I do not regret,
nor will I fret,
I kind of know.
I guess that you,
don't feel the way I do.

I will always love you.
No matter what.
You do or say.

I can not help it.
Nor would I.
want to.

I will just view You.
from afar,
like gazing at,
a twinkling,

And pray and wait,
and wonder.
the marvel,
that you are.

Granted and Given

It is all in the Stars if you look hard enough.
There is always the morning Star twinkling.
And then there is the evening Star blinking.
And then there are layered clouds in a fluff.
Then there is the Sun and Moon and stuff.
Sometimes it looks like the Moons winking.
Sometimes it looks like the Sun is thinking.
Makes me wonder if their day can be rough!
What a wondrous world I live in.
What balance I live by every day.
My life must be granted and given.
So no wonder I take time to pray.
It is granted and given each day just to be me.
Just look up once a day and this you can see.

Wide Eyes Absorbing True Magical Scene

Wide Eyes Absorbing That Magical Scene

Upon night's clear sky, moon glowing its best
Soft breeze, swirling gently in silent tune
That gleaming star shining high in the West
Companion for Heaven's striking big moon

Wide eyes absorbing true magical scene
With its proof we are souls wanting to fly
Earthen ground reflecting brightest moon-sheen
Tears born of pure joy, not a sad, sad cry

As dawn comes to wipe, to gift us new views
We may feel pains of sorrow losing this
Should we not celebrate having the two
For surely either lost, we'd dearly miss

Should mankind ponder why such great, bright gifts
Tis Heaven's view to earth, that so uplifts

by Robert J. Lindley

This sonnet was written this morn, as I watched dawn approach this happy family home, hidden away in these magnificent hills!
Earth, Sky and Heaven sent moon's gleaming views away to birth early dawn's great gifts to mankind!

A Lasting Star

I gaze upon the vast night sky
And I saw a star that caught my eye
I watched the star as it twinkled bright
And wondered about its ancient light

Obeying only the universal laws
Unconcerned by the effect and cause
Destruction and creation are sublime
And exist in the very same moment in time

I wondered if it had ceased to be
And only its past is to be shown to me
From a  million eons long ago
I am blessed tonight by a brilliant glow

But I know if it ever seems to be gone 
It is only evolving and ready to move on
