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



After all these years

I can still hear his

voice saying …


even though he

is no longer in this

realm, I know he is

there watching

over me …


I am Star…
