The Living Fallen Star



The Living Fallen Star

The fallen Star left it's heavenly trail.

As it descended to earth and fell at my feet.

Upon this sandy shore and at my sandeled feet; the fallen star had lost it's sparkle.

Transformed into a sea creature, delicatedly designed and marked; but a star it remained.

Patiently the star awaited the glisteninng lunar tide.

Impatiently I plucked the sandy star from above the shoreline and walked with it to the illuminated waves.

Releasing the star to a watery habitat and at my immersed feet; I saw the crest fallen,

sandy star return to life.

Readily, the streaming star moved and glistened amongst the seabed's scene.

Composed poetic story!

I love it! Being Scot, we do love a great tale...and You

Being from Wales know to be a story teller.

After all it's in the blood

I enjoyed this piece very much!


Poetry is passion,imagination & soul mixing together....

The Magic Of Stars

The transformation was marvelous to experience. You could hear the sound of waves in this poem. I thought of starfish attached, like everything else, to the universe. Lovely writing -allets-
