"Twinkle twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are. Up above the world so high, like a diamond in the sky. Twinkle twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are...."


you are my falling star-
my hint of something miraclous
and as you blaze past me
I catch a handful of your dust-
bejeweled
and sparkled-

everything
about you
makes me shine
so let me sing my song
and wish a wish on you
and we'll see...we'll see if it comes true-


"Starlight, star bright,
First star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight."


------------------
And I thought: this is how poetry is born. It comes from invisible heights, it is secret and dark in its origins, solitary and fragrant, and like the river it will assimilate whatever falls in its current; it will seek a route between the mountains, and its crystalline song will ripple through the meadows."- Pablo Neruda

Thanks for the Tigger, Nan! I definitely needed that!!! He's my fave .....
I did figure out the editing bit, but it wouldn't let me fix the most blantant error- the title typo. Ah well...

Twinkle twinkle you’re the star
Not just because we say you are
Up above Your words so high
Clearly diamonds in the sky


Nice one Christina and I like the title just fine.

I didn't have time to read this one, but now that you pointed it out to me, I feel very fortunate. This is one I should not miss out on, or any of yours particularly. You are a very gifted writer.

By the way where did you get that quote from, at the bottom of your comments?
