a constellation of star poems



☆the stars you put there☆


i didn’t know the city sky had stars

until you showed me their luster;

what dim nights i had in the year past

were now sparked full of color clusters;

by prickling constellation

and calming gaze of the moon’s eye,

all fears are hushed by night’s whisper

and my anxious mind is forced to comply


i walk with softer steps and windless heart

under the blanket you wrapped me in,

as a subtle reassurance that you, too,

feel the tranquility of their presence within


but i wouldn’t believe you if you told me

that the night's sky was never bare;

because if i’m being honest,

i think it’s you who put the stars there

☆conductor☆


the shapes in the stars take form

aligning themselves to your will, in threes

you are their creator, their conductor

a full orchestral sky at your command


and at your fingertips, they spark

into melodic measures that trail;

they lift sullen eyes--those of mine

and cast light into all hardened hearts


your creations wash the heaviness

out of the night's grasp,

bringing out the lightness of youth,

a childish smile i had never known


one dripping with sickly sweet nostalgia

for forest-lined streets that open

to gaping fields, like jaws

with rows of starry teeth


at once, your painted sky summons me home

to 3am strolls under snow-ridden trees,

with reddened nose under night's presence

i am myself again, backed by rushing breeze
