Star Child

Are you a star child? 

 Can you make the flowers bloom 
with a wave of your hand?
Do diamonds wonder what it would be like
 to be you?
Do your words linger long
 like waves, 
made to lap the beaches velvet shore
 and rock in its poetic ebb?
Does your gravity pull the 
 into the infinite orbit of your eyes; 
and when welling a tear,
could they wash away the sea?

"poetic ebb"

"...when welling a tear,/could they wash away the sea?" - Artistic excellence lives in a great ending and this is one great ending. Bravo! Well sculpted poem - Lady A -

    Love your poem it reminds



Love your poem it reminds me of the 1960's/70's era. Well written and a good and enjoyable read. You are very expressive and descriptive in your work. I liked your poem very much; to loose the stars, the moon and the earth in someones gaze, is trully wonderfull.

thank you

I read many types of poetry, and some of the best,in my opinion...came out of the 60s. There really WAS a revolution in that art,literature,and culture. Most of the constraints and boundaries were abandoned and some brilliant things were printed not just in books, but in the fabric of humanity. It really has...and will always inspire me.

This is really good and when

This is really good and when read in my head it has a very sway-y motion. A soothing back-and-forth lilt that makes for great whimsical poetry.

But, I do have a question. In the first line it says "a waive of your hand?" In this to you mean to say 'wave of your hand' or am I missing a point here?

My apologies if the second.

Great poem.


If your mirror doesn't find you one of the most beautiful people it has ever seen, punch it and find a better mirror.

grammer glitch

Yes, it was a grammatical error on my part and will make that correction! Thanks for keeping a sharp eye! I hope you enjoyed the read minus the grammar- fail!
