Look up, behold the garnet star
High up in starry heavens far
Bright amber jewel that shines pristine
What ancient secrets have you seen
Over a distant desert void
Its crumbling castles, long destroyed
And ghostly armies passing by
Naught could escape your piercing eye
Bold crimson star, we're far apart
But your deep gaze enchants my heart
So radiate your mystery
That through the night, calls out to me
And please impart, I do appeal
Your mystic secrets to reveal.
Just discovered your comment to my poem, my sweet Mari Ann. Though you passed away some years ago I feel we will always be connected in the Universe. And someday we will be reunited. Thank you for for being my best friend and soulmate for over 20 years. Thank you for all the love and companionship you gave me. I love you.
Oh what a wonderful write. You always keep me spellbound with poetry of the stars. It seems as though the bases would be covered with a couple of poems on stars and such, but you have a way of bringing the magic to them they deserve. The magic of the universe is woven in your words. Awesome Job!
