WINNER of Poetry Challenge #140
« on: July 15, 2016, 11:34:04 AM »
CONGRATULATIONS TO REW
for this poem on the Japanese Tanabata Festival

#3

Meeting of Stars

When a galaxy
looks like sprinkles
of fairy dust layered into
a black veil folded over
again and again,
it is easy to believe in wishes
and tales of how two lovers
grew to be separated in the sky.

The heavens might be listening,
that we should be so lucky,
to have our fates changed
with the wake of stars.


Good luck with Poetry Challenge #141 REW!

Haha thanks folks.

I hope you will all enter my challenge.  I am in the White Mountains and will post full details Monday.

After all the violence lately think peace, love, happiness, anti-war, anti-violence...

Seek inspiration from Cat Stevens music, Bob Dylan, The Turtles, Peter, Paul, and Mary...the 60's :)
