The Stars are Smiling

The stars are smiling down at us
As though a cherished friend
In twinkling winks they wonder why
We stand and gaze at them

It does seem odd that little earth
On darkened side still gleams
With sparkling diamond midnight lights
As stars look down and dream

What fortunes could abound on earth
That draw so many eyes
To worship these electric beams
As wonders of the skies

And we on earth look to the heavens
In wonderment and lust
While stars with little twinkling eyes
Are gazing back at us

Stars are a source of wonder and delight aren't they?..and you have captured that here for us.

Liz,

This is wonderful.  I do enjoy star-gazing. Being a hunter...I always look for Orion.

Hi Liz,

A wonderful sight the stars above and to think of them looking back in a dream state is so perfect.

HUGS from, Cerenity

A lover of the stars, they strike me as cold and hot at the same time, if that makes any sense!

A lovely poem, Liz, and I can tell that you take the time to appreciate the world outside!

Thank you, dear star gazers, for your twinkling comments. Corinne's view of stars being hot and cold is very interesting, but that's food for another poem. Corinne, you can write that one.
Thank you all
Liz

Wow! Beautiful work again, Elizabeth. And I would say more, but what can I say that hasn't already been said?

Elizabeth~
Thank you for penning this beauty.
You are 'twinkling' with delight.
Of course you KNOW I'm addicted to
the evening skies ... why, what else
would Ms. Moon choose to wear in her hair
but your twinkling stars ?

You're a sweetheart.
