Inspired by Stars

So many artists are inspired by stars, and I am no exception. From the bright constellations in our skies have come many poems, songs, romances & dreams. Over my years as a writer & singer, they have been a constant theme in my artistic life. I do hope you enjoy a few of my short poems of the stars. I was nominated by Kim for a Quotes challenge (click for link to her lovely blog), so will include some beautiful quotes of the stars that I love as well.

Starlit Sanctuary

She dances ‘neath midnight sky,

Spinning as her wishes fly,

Lost in the glow of moonbeams,

Safe in her starlit sanctuary of dreams.

Stitching Hope

Reaching into the universe,

She stitched a constellation of light,

Creating a blanket of stars,

A ray of hope in the darkness.

Made of Stars

She was an ink painting of night filled with diamonds,

her sighs twinkling in the chill,

her eyes spilling moonlight tears & star dreams.

Rainbow constellations

She held a rainbow of constellations within,

light shining through every fiber of her skin,

hope sparking in the night,

her dreams a wondrous sight.

  1. Wow, Stacie, such a beautiful collection of metaphors in your poem; I especially love:
    ‘Reaching into the universe,
    She stitched a constellation of light,
    Creating a blanket of stars,
    A ray of hope in the darkness.’
    And what a great collection of quotes! My favourite: ‘I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night’.

  2. Nice, keep your feet on the ground but keep reaching for those stars! 😉
    Your book cover is interesting, too… sending good luck to you for that! Go go go!
