My Response to "Word Prompts Help Creativity ~ Week 28 - "Star"; "Connection Beneath the Stars"; & "Twinkle Magic"

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

My Response to "Word Prompts Help Creativity ~Week 28 - "Star"; "Connection Beneath The Stars"; & "Twinkle Magic" consists of 3 poems.

The first one is an acrostic poem.

The second one is about communicating with one another through the stars.

The third one is about a woman who is sad until she looks up at the stars in the night sky.

I hope you enjoy them.

Star

Sequins in a dark black sky
Twinkling ever so brightly
All-knowing eyes watching our every move
Reassuring us we’re not alone.

Connection Beneath The Stars

She wishes upon a star

with a message of hope,

touching a friend across the ocean waves

who looks up at the same night sky.


In the morning twilight

she feels a peacefulness in her heart,

knowing her words

traveled across the universe.


Then she waits

for the sequins to shine once more,

to embrace their connection

like they are face to face.

Twinkle Magic

The stars sparkling in her eyes,

drift away

in an ocean full of tears.


Tired of those little white lies,

with each word

coating her ears.


She prays angels soothe her weary soul,

as she glances up at the shimmering beads

dancing in the night sky.


She sees a reflection of light

refreshing her spirit,

placing a twinkle in her somber eyes.

Peggy

Thank you so much.

I'd like to think we can be connected even though we are miles apart.

Guess that's the romantic side of me always wanting fairy tales.

Enjoy your Sunday.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on September 05, 2021:

Each of these poems were good Brenda. I enjoyed how you described the stars and how they unite us worldwide when we gaze up at them transmitting our thoughts and love to ones far away.

Lora

Thank you so much.

I do sometimes feel like we are connecting to them when I look up.

Have a great Labor Day Weekend.

Lora Hollings on September 04, 2021:

I love your collection of star poems, Brenda. There are some gems here just like the stars above they twinkle with love and offer us much comfort of those we have lost here on this earth but still feel a sense of connection to them when we look up and see the stars shining so bright in the night sky. Beautifully done.

John

Thank you.

It took me a bit of searching to find the right songs.

I'm glad they fit.

I like that poem too. It's a nice thought to think we can connect with one another across the ocean.

Have a great weekend.

Janis

Thank you so much for your kind words.

I was trying to find different words that would represent the stars...I guess these ones worked.

Have a great weekend.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on September 04, 2021:

Brenda, I love each of these poems especially the message in the second where she reaches out across the stars to connect with a friend.

The songs by Train fit perfectly with your poems.

Janis Leslie Evans from Washington, DC on September 04, 2021:

Brenda, these 3 poems are exquisite. Each is so different, so full of depth. My favorite is the "Connection Beneath the Stars." I love your use of the words 'sequins' and 'beads' to describe the stars, so uniquely creative. Thanks for gifting us.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on September 04, 2021:

Rosina

Thank you for your kindness.

I'm not certain these are splendid, but they are what my muse created.

Have a wonderful day & weekend.

P.S.. I think we can communicate through the stars if we listen.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on September 04, 2021:

Misbah

Thank you.

I'll send you a message the next time I gaze on the stars.

So glad you enjoyed them all.

Take care & look up.

Thank you so much for your kind words.

We are not alone...that is written in the stars.

Have a great weekend.

Thank you.

Stars seem to have a peaceful effect on you when you gaze upon them.

Have a great weekend.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on September 04, 2021:

Pamela

Thank you.

I'd like to think we can connect with others through the stars.

Perhaps it does make it seem a bit smaller.

Take care & enjoy your Labor Day Weekend.

Vidya

Thank you so much.

I enjoyed your interpretation of my poems.

I seldom receive that & it helps to know how others perceive them.

Have a great day.

Rosina S Khan on September 04, 2021:

I like the idea of communicating with a friend through the starry sky as in the second poem. The woman finding solace watching the stars in the sky in the third poem is a great one. I loved the acrostic poem as well. Thank you for sharing your splendid poetry on "star", Brenda

Misbah Sheikh from The World of Rebels. on September 04, 2021:

Bredz, this a Super Bravo response to the word prompt. I enjoyed reading all your poems. So sweet and beautiful. Loved them all.

Take care and keep smiling while gazing at the stars.

Blessings and Love to you!!

manatita44 from london on September 04, 2021:

Message of hope and peacefulness in the second, and in the third a little poignant, sombre. The acrostic was succinct and awesome! I especially loved this deep line: "Reassuring us we're not alone." Excellent article and worthy prompt response. Sweet!!

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on September 04, 2021:

Hello Brenda!

All beautiful poems, based on the word prompt, star.

I liked all of them—A combination of positivity and serenity. Looking at the stars, definitely has a calming effect on the senses.

Thank you for sharing. Have a good day.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on September 04, 2021:

These are all excellent poems,

Brenda. I particularly like the magic of the second poem. You showed how we are all connected through the stars. It makes the world seem smaller somehow, like we are all closer together.

I like the lines in the third poem that is: "She prays angels soothe her weary soul,

as she glances up at the shimmering beads

dancing in the night sky."

That paints such a beautiful picture of longing.

All of your poems were so enjoyable to read.

VIDYA D SAGAR on September 03, 2021:

Lovely poems, Brenda. You have brought out the emotions of hope and positivity very well in the poems. When the charm of love fades, she wishes upon a a star for the magic of love to shine once more, in the second poem and in the third poem, devastated by the betrayal of love she finds the light of the stars refresh her spirit and soothe her soul. Very nice imagery. I loved all the poems. Thanks for sharing.
