The Stars See

Vintage Words


The people come in all sizes but they

seem small compared to our massive span;

the reach of our arms, the brilliance

of our furnace hearts.


They enjoy endless gifts to plants

that need photosynthetic light from

sister Sol. When did we, the stars,

become the object of so much emotion,

or cause for melancholia? We know

our expanse is infinite, but when did

our embrace become a trysting place

to walk beneath?


The humans and the animals forage

under many of us thriving, are reflected

in rain touched quiet streets. We peer

at life through magnified lenses as

distant suns.


We, stars, respect moon aspects, and

occasionally hide behind opaqued

clouds for a while. As voyeurs

we enjoy the view.

Yeah, Pretty Much Stevie Wondered, Stars

I like fooling around with anthropomrophizing the inanimate. These might be dream stars though. No shaking permitted - ;D
