First Star to the Right
~*~ First Star to the Right ~*~
blustar-1.jpg picture by blueyedsoul_cindy
He finds his destiny in blue sky sights
Sitting in a porch swing, on painted desert nights
The sweet smell of wildflower, the memory of her smile
Finds a lonely cowboy waiting all the while
He dreams of a woman, close by his side
Like the presence of an angel, all doubts defied;
Warming him gently, caressing him with care;
Someone to hold onto, a life they might share;
Healing for his heartaches; the comfort of a home
A sweet soulful yearning, like nothing he's ever known
Through oceans of night sky, he searches starlight fields
Wondering what promise his heart cry might yield

He feels her close by him, her spirit never far
Then searches the dark sky for her bright burning star
He gave her directions, first star to the right
Never forgotten, he holds fast to her light

Incredible, is so soft and dreamy!  I loved the title and very happy to see how you carried it out in the last stanza.  Wonderful way you wrote this from the cowboy's perspective... a poem that leaves the reader with hope that his search will end when he finds her...first star to the right.  another fave!

Cindy - What caught my attention is the "Peter Pan" reference, but I really enjoy where this work went from there. Beautifully done.

"Wondering what promise his heart cry might yield".  That is the most perfect description of looking at the night sky I've ever read.  Meters of beauty.  It wouldn't be Capella, would it?

Romantic, people think this way but seldom write this way.Great write!


Comment By: FreeRoger Bacon on July 9, 2008 02:36:24 PM Report
I've always heard look to the sky for directions.  Lately though, I look up at the big dipper and wonder if it's half full or half empty.  Things go that way somethimes.  I like the feeling of this poem.  The simple direction that will last a life time.  Wonderful work!

A faultless rhyme that flows effortlessly. I read a lot of rhyming poetry on this site and very few get the measure and the rhythm so exactly right as you have done here.

Oh my...deep into space and your heart you fling us.

I love this one Cindy.

Ah Cindy My Pretty Lady,

what a love poem for someone special to you.

The depth of feeling and visual writing allows us to see them both

and the love they share together.

A beutiful moving piece from a beautiful Princess.

Delightful penning Cindy...this reached inside and gave my heart a tight squeeze. These are beautiful love filled verses coupled with the yearning that separation brings. *sigh*



Comment By: PremiumDavid Turner on July 3, 2008 06:20:04 PM Report
THe changes you have made to this are spot on Barbara. There is a very bright star in the south at the moment at about 1am, (It will be the same local time for you as for me) but I am unable to find out what it is. It must be a planet I think - probably Jupiter. I willget my telescope out tonight to check if it is clear.


WArm Wishes

Cindy, this is so beautiful! A tale that can only be told and understood by those with yearning hearts. I can bet that your deeper meaning will get through to him.  Henry

A very Poignant poem Cindy - where did you get the idea? It has echos of Peter Pan.

I think it is about a cowboy's wife/woman who died, but I don't understand the last line -


She's never forgotten, a full moon so bright


Is she a star or the moon?



Comment By: FreeAmy on July 3, 2008 01:06:47 AM Report
I'm sure he loves it...It's beautiful both in words and presentation.
