Star …

Day 22: Writer’s Digest April 2016 PAD

For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Star (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write the poem. Possible titles include: “Star-struck,” “Star Man,” “Star Wars Prequels Aren’t Star Wars Movies,” “Starter Set,” “Stark Raving Mad,” and so on. Remember: I’m totally fine with prompts that get bent a bit.

 Star …

 

I have always

been drawn to

Stars …

the heavens

have intrigued

me since childhood

The first rhyme I

learned from my

Mom was …

“Star Light, Star Bright”

Followed by “Twinkle

Twinkle Little Star”

The first song I learned

to sing at four was Perry Como’s

“Catch a Falling Star”

For years I have collected

Moon & Star everything…

jewelry in particular

Wearing a ring that I

never remove

I was given the handle

Stargypsy by someone

dear to me … not my

first love … but my last

When he didn’t call me

“Kid” he called me “Star”

never my real name

because Star was his

name for me and me

alone

 

After all these years

I can still hear his

voice saying …

“Hey…Star”

even though he

is no longer in this

realm, I know he is

there watching

over me …

 

I am Star…
