~Ask The Stars~


     

Ask the silver stars ... of all that I wish for
and they will tell you true.
By midnight's light ... my heart in flight
I only want and wish of you.

Ask the metallic moon ... before it's taken too soon
for only he knows the secrets I keep.
An unending yearning ... a burning discerning
this ache stays with me even as I sleep.

Ask the summer's sun ... as the day has just begun
you're my waking thought as I rise.
By morn's first light ... born of dawn's insight
you inspire me in rhymed reprise.

Ask the endless skies ... where my heart lies
for the clouds know the promises kept.
A tender touch invited ... caressing all my unrequited
so many tears wept as a heart learns to accept.

Ask the rhythmic rain ... how I call out your name
the sound so sweet in resonating sustain.
An emotional refuge ... in devotion's deluge
this love flows through me in reverberating refrain.

Ask the oceans blue ... how I dream of only you
waves of wonder wash over me.
Drawn to your depths ... tides that take away my breath
swept in surrender on seas of serenity.

Ask the evening sun ... as another day is done
you're the whispered prayer I pray.
In dusking twilight ... as the sky gives way to night
I swear on stars above this love is here to stay.

You are my day's begin and end ...
my sun's descent ... my moon's ascend.
Without you the stars turn to dust and are just pretend.
You are my heart's healing amend ...
my inspire's intend ... my rhyme's transcend.

Ask the stars all that I wish for
and they will tell you true ...


              

Janet Marie



              


      


"It's funny how the sun comes when I'm dreaming
It forces me to wake and think of you
I'll bring you a message like the rebirth
You'll give me light to see me through.

And how long will you let true love last forever
And how far can you believe in now or never
There's a light that's trapped behind your eyes
All my life, all my life I've been waiting
To see your spirit rise.

Noah Hunt
"Nimbus"

  



If all the tear drops went to heaven
And if all the pain was confined ...
Would I be your salvation
could I make your spirit shine.

JM,
You leave me breathless and wordless with this field of floral nectar. It is like entering another world. One that I have been seeking. Tempting to the point of dream, if you know what I mean. You always write with your heart so the answer can only be from mine. I would join you there.

Ahhhhh ... now "this" is just heavenly my dear gator-gal!  

Absolutely delightful internal and end rhymes, and I loved the fluid motion throughout. The images in this piece are vivid and real ... and you've given the constellations a character unto themselves. I feel like I could peek out the window, and ask some of my own questions. You brought this to life beautifully, my friend. What a lovely way to send me off to sleep tonight ... loved this Janet Marie, just loved it!

Best wishes and hugs,
/Kit

Oh I love it when you and your muse finally connect in the "want and need department", and if I may say so - it's about time!       This, my dear friend, was well worth the wait, yes indeedy it sure was.  May all these wishes and dreams be yours forever.  Oh, p.s. I loved the rhyme "inside" the poem and I suppose that has a name too right?  hehe - loved this, absolutely, positively loved it Gatorgurlfriend.  I have missed you and your juxtaposies something awful.


The most valuable thing you own is a smile, wear it, and share it.

Ms. Butterfly, it's good to see you posting again, and it was worth the wait, as you never dissapoint and I always find a glimmer of myself in your words.
This is beautiful in it's classic ache, in it's imagery, heart-pour, and in it's internal and ending rhyme.  Yes, I feel- this~  And, it's a keeper.

Take care,
Melissa~

OMG!!!! I had to read it twice and am sitting here in tears.... it is SOOOOO beautiful... and so true.... I could only want to write something as incredible as this and say what you have said here... it was a feeling I knew for the 13 years between my beloved and myself getting back together and getting married.... Every verse, NO, every line sang to me.... and the song was truth... even the unrequited part at the time of not knowing... This is a very moving and beautiful piece...
As far as form, I really enjoyed all the ways you tied your verses together with the juxtaposed rhyming scheme...together and apart.... it fit the entire theme of the piece.

I must say thankyou for writing my heart. I am adding this to my library!!!
Love, Light and Peace,

Sherry

Cherish the good memories past and look forward to the adventure called Tomorrow.
But above all... be kind to yourself today.

Janet,

This is a most beautiful write from your long missed pen.

I have asked all those questions and they keep telling me to go to the arch for answers. They just may sneak up on you.

I can only hope.

Without you the stars turn to dust and are just pretend.
You are my heart's healing amend ...
my inspire's intend ... my rhyme's transcend.

Ask the stars all that I wish for

Ya know, I've been waiting.  I knew when I again saw your name I was gonna sit here and say I knew it would be beautiful......
and I was right.  Lovely verse filled with your heart....
It don't get any better than this....

About time that your moody muse let you out to play.  Was it the rain that finally pushed forth this bit of harvest?  Do you have any idea how happy I am to see this here?
