Short Stories and poems with deeper meaning than what is visibly seen on the surface. Enjoy!

Whenever we hear, see, taste, touch, or enjoy the fragrances of our surroundings, we are experiencing a miracle from God.

— Tamara Yancosky Moore

The Falling Star Just Kept Falling!

I looked up into the midnight sky,

and there I saw a falling-star,

and this falling-star

just kept falling!

This falling-star fell right out

of the midnight sky,

and directly into my hands!


My Friend Asked Me

My friend, who was beside me,

asked me in a trembling voice,

"What are y-y-you going to do

w-w-with that s-s-star?"

Royal Blue Night

I Answered My Friend

I looked down at the breathing,

twinkling, star that I held

within my hands,

and after only a short moment

of very deep thought,

I carefully, and deliberately,

replied back to my friend,

"I am going to give this star away!

I will give it to someone

who has an important

and beautiful wish

that they need fulfilled."

My Decision

And, I found this

to be a very easy decision

for me because, you see,

I had all that I

had ever wished for already:

My family's health;

Shelter from the elements;

Daily food;

Clean water to drink;

Air to breathe;

Legs to walk; and,

Peace in my heart

from the Great Love

of our Heavenly Father!

Therefore, what more

could I possibly wish for?

Falling Star


My Friend Was in Need!

[I ended up giving the star away

to my friend who was beside me,

because he had an important

and beautiful wish to be fulfilled!

He wanted his heart to be made

whole, again]!

My Friend's Wish

[You see, upon the sight

of my holding a breathing,

twinkling, living star

within my very hands,

(that fell from the midnight sky),

my dear friend had a massive heart-attack)!

      This is creative and beautiful. Just the thought of being able to hold a star, makes me remember how creative I was a child. Thank you for writing, your words are enlightening.

      LOL...Thank you, Luke! This feedback will help me very much as I am new to the Hub. I will put it in Narrative Poetry at your kind advice. The ending was a bit of humor in putting "reality" back into this fantasy by concluding that "if anyone saw a person actually holding a star, (if this were even possible), they, too, would probably have a heart attack :-) I enjoy adding a bit of humor to my writing. Your comment is very helpful and appreciated!

      Tamara, thank you for sharing your lovely poem. I think this should probably be under narrative poetry, but it's your choice. I enjoyed the descent of the star into the girl's hands. I liked the idea of giving away the power to someone who needed it. However, I didn't understand the end and why the boy had to have a heart-attack. What was the underlying thematic meaning for that? Anyway, I enjoyed your short story. Keep up the good work!
