Reach and Touch a Star
Reach and touch a star,
On this cloudless night.
Peaceful, crystalline,
Such a magnificent sight.
Observe the shining sea,
Each star so bright,
Shimmering delicately.
An individual delight.
Boldy, I follow one,
So beautiful tonight.
A special pure, deep blue.
I gather in her light.
Bring on magnification,
It reveals no more detail.
Gently bend her rays.
Tools are to no avail.
I turn my thoughts to you.
A clearer view, desirable.
Yet, to this mere mortal,
Equally unobtainable.
Enigma of my universe,
You're certain to remain.
As you transit the heavens,
My love shall never wane.

Who's the keeper of your eyes

A beautiful poem.  The heaven's are full of mystery and beauty.  Wouldn't it be lovely to dance among the stars between Jupiter and Mars.

This gave me warm fuzzies. I grew up in Houston near Nasa. My mom worked there during the Apollo missions. This poem took me back to my backyard where my brother would explain all the constellations and talk of all the planets we (man) would explore. 40 yrs later and we haven't gone much further but I never tire of looking up at the stars. Your poem captures the mystery and romance of all that twinkles above us.

Oh Gosh Rich.....this is you...this is why I always love your writing. I love the star, moon and sky..then mix it with romance....I just melt.Utterly tender, devoted and beautiful, with a hint of sadness. <sighs>

Rich, Our spirits are part of this enigma that we all share an earthly kin! We all were born into this universal rhyme! Your imagery, Wonderful!  The stars are like love, there are fleeting moments when we've reached out and gathered the beauty of it's light, and other times when we've reached for something unobtainable. Beautiful write!!

                                      Sincerely, Clay TheWolf...

Nice poem...I like it...:O)
Comment By: PremiumJoe McNinney on September 26, 2006 04:25:20 PM Report

Now this is just terrific Rich, very romantic and tender. While you are reaching for that star, extend just a little further for her! Joe

Comment By: FreeBarbara Demasson on September 22, 2006 02:23:04 AM Report
From one mere mortal to another let me say this... if you love her this deeply reach out for her...perhaps the unobtainable can be obtainable. What do you have to lose?

This is lovely but the acceptance of the situation as it is ruffled me a bit. (as my comment above shows) Boldy you follow her...that is boldy make your move.

I love the line "Enigma of my universe" just smashing, bloody smashing thats what it is!
Comment By: FreeGlata on September 19, 2006 09:46:02 AM Report
Beautiful work, Rich...and sometimes I can so absolutely agree...Love is as unobtainable as the stars!

Keep reaching out,'ll reach that star one day and she'll shine brightly just for you.

Nicely done Rich. Calm and peaceful with just enough wonder to make the mind think a bit.

Comment By: FreeGraham Jones on September 18, 2006 04:41:34 AM Report
Well Rich I guess stars are all about reflection, lost love,mystery and affection and they will still be there long after our demise, but of course memories may last forever for some of us.nice write.
