Love Star

A single bright shining orb upon the black canvas of night sky

The Love Star shining down to cast that gleam into your eye

There in the heavens suspended on a sky of clustered glow

A mark upon the heavens that only you and I would know

 

 

A star which caught our eyes on the first night that we touched

The star marking the moment when our hearts were tightly clutched

A place in the heavens familiar to our gaze; etched in our hearts

A place that we both can gaze upon when we are far apart

 

 

How far across this earthly ground can love’s long arms go?

Will the star bind our hearts together as we gaze upon its glow?

Though the distance between our hearts is measured in miles and days

The star brings our hearts instantly together with just a simple gaze

 

 

Love Star, Love Star, burning in the heavenly darkness of infinity

Keep our hearts together and warm until again we may see

The smiling face of the one true soul running toward love’s embrace

Shine your glow upon our hearts and light the love upon our face

 

 

When we wish upon a star together, our hearts are beating in phase

Love grows each time the wish is renewed as on the star we gaze

A glowing orb upon the black canvas sky, looking down upon our love

A bright reminder of a special feel in our hearts created from above

 

 

Love Star, Love Star, stay in the heavens there; never lose that shiny glow

Keep our hearts happily together as one; let the love within us show

Guide us wherever we are back to that one so true; our love bestow

Shower our nights with your brilliance; bathe us in your loving glow

Wayne you lay down some serious poemage

I think its funny how you call this "fooling around", considering when I write something this good, I call it a masterpiece haha

just shows how easily you can create wonderful work.

@BenWritings...If you like time and space try my hubs "Cycles" and "Earthbound". Thanks for your good words. You have to remember not to try to hard. It's not the trying that makes it work, it's the words. Think about that move "The Outlaw Josey Wales"...when the bounty hunters had Josey confronted in the saloon and pistols were ready to be pulled. One of the bounty hunters made the statement that "it wasn't nothing personal, he was just tryin' to make a livin'". Wales replied through the grimace on his face, "Dyin' ain't much of a livin,boy". That's the hook you hunt and find. Poems are about a single emotion that turns into a single line of words that prompt another thought until the words build a verse and so on. There are ways to approach it. For example, with this poem, I knew it had to be about love and relationships and how the star bound it together....so there bounds, ties, stars, sky, hands, fingers...all of those things coming from the emotion of to two people gazing upon a star...no all about you but both you and her...and the star. As you think about it the subject just broadens right out in front of you and you know that you have to talk about those things and how they relate. That's not trying hard...it's finding the words. You have that ability...I can see it in your stuff when I read it. Go with your heart and don't let the brain play with things too much. Don't be afraid to let the tender underbelly show. If you can touch your own heart and put a tear in your own eye...the reader will follow. That's my lesson for today! Ha! Find me a place to hide this soapbox! LOL! Thanks my friend! WB

You make me shed many a tear ;]

Yeah, I have written a couple poems where I knew I was trying to hard, and discarded them, despite the time I put into them.

Everything I have posted has come from the heart, perhaps baring too much of my soul to the public. I have placed my heart and soul into words, the only way I know how. By reading them, you are simply catching a glimpse of the parts of me that few people have ever had the desire to truly see.

Hubpages, and awesome writers such as yourself, have given me great motivation to follow my heart, and perhaps someday, my writings will make a genuine impact. I would like to make it my career, but I wouldn't know where to start.

Lovely! Guess there is at least one lady with some special qualities. Kidding! Truly beautiful images. Nice break from that dark and serious stuff - huh?

The last line gives me goosebumps -- in a good way.

Shower our nights with your brilliance; bathe us in your loving glow

Wow! Hope it is a starry night tonight!

We all have a love star, don’t we? It shines down on us even if we don’t look up to it. Wayne, this is a beautiful poem stressing the intensity of love.

@BenWritings...Thanks Ben...you are on the right track and maybe one of these days I will be browsing a book of your poetry in a nearby shop...it is a strong possibility! WB

@Truckstop Sally...Thank you! I felt this was my repentance for the dark stuff I have been writing lately! WB

@tnderhrt23...Thank you, glad that I could conjure those images with my words for you. WB

@bayoulady...After reading this one last night, my wife reminded me that the cards that I get for her should have my words in them...not someone else's. Now I have to buy blank cards...dang! LOL! WB

@MartieCoetser...Yes, I think we do, Martie. It seemed quite logical to me as I wrote this one. I had read another love poem related to the heavens and begin to think about the triangulation of two lovers on the ground in different places gazing up on the same body in the heavens....that was my inspiration.

I used to love laying on the side of a hill, sandy beach or rooftop with my lover, watching the star laden sky paint portraits of our love for one another. Watching and feeling the fingers of our creator masterfully paint a true picture of the love we felt for each other as we lay there looking into each others eyes.

Wayne this is a beautiful masterpiece created here and I am so pleased to read your advice to young BenWritings, he has a heart filled with LOVE and simply needs to let it all out in his verse to flow with the other creative verses he adds.

Everything has an order of things and layed down correctly from the soul, they will flow into each other and create fine works. Bravo Wayne, rated way UP...

@saddlerider1...Thanks to you Ken...great words...should have saved them for a hub! LOL! Ben's words will only improve with life experience. That is probably the singular thing missing for him now...just life experience. I just completed the comment on the hearse driver story. The young lady has lots of promise with her ability to create such fiction. I think she will do well if she pursues that course. Thanks much for such kind words...you give me encouragement...always!

One more round of applause Wayne, brilliant. I wish I could have just 5% of your insight and talent and then maybe I could write a decent poem. I have so many words and feelings but when I pour them out, it is just a jumble.

I still look to you for inspiration and hope one day to write a piece to touch you, the master.

Mauch love.

@thebluestar...Thank you so very much. I am so proud you feel that way about my work. My experience at writing poetry is very short. Like you, I have a lot of emotions inside and they will come pouring forth if I let them..then they begin to manage me not vice versa. As I told BenWritings in a comment above. You start with a subject and list some of the emotions about it that touch you. Look for the relationship between those emotions and weave your verse within that structure. Words then become phrases and lines and verses. Don't fall for broad concepts....like Love, Hate, Regret...they are way to broad to paint on a canvas. They are a result not an effect. Write about the effect and the reader will feel the result. Let the words do the work and don't overthink it. Also, the readers have taught me that I am not the best judge of my work. On that basis, don't be too quick to toss something away. Lay it aside and come back to it another day and rethink it from a different angle..sometimes it falls right into place. One thing I have learned...if I am struggling with a concept, my energy is better used somewhere else. Inspiration will flow if you find it...write of your passions...like that horse in the picture with you. WB

Your experience must be very long to write with passion, insight and project a broad brush filled in with fine details of word music..

@dallas93444....my military experience gave me time to see a lot of the world from different angles...women have taught me the rest! LOL! Thanks much! WB

up, beautiful, and "liked". I'm even going to share this with the romantics on my facebook page.

Beautifully romantic infused with a prayer like quality. On a wing and a prayer, I reckon. Your work, dark or light, is amazing.

Wayne Brown 5 years ago from Texas Author

@sureroy333...Thank you so much...glad for you to share it and I sure hope they like it too! WB

@Amy Becherer...Thank you, Amy. I hope the well does not run dry. Sometimes I think it is then I hit my stride again. Back when I was writing my 50th hub, I thought I was done...I just hope that I can keep the quality there and hold the interest of the reader. Thanks for your great words! WB

Your hubs, Wayne, never cease to surprise me. One moment, a gritty cowboy and bad guy story; the next, a romantic, sweet love poem. You ARE a creative guy. :)

Wayne Brown 5 years ago from Texas Author

@drbj...It's how I get my chops, I think. I do feel that I can keep my edge if I try to write across a broad range of subjects and emotion...in that way I do not feel so without material. I will continue to share it if I can conjure it up. Thanks for the good words! WB

Reading your hubs is like enrolling in a clinic on creative writing. Once you become in tune with your thoughts and emotions, just let the words paint the picture. Thanks again for sharing.

Wayne Brown 5 years ago from Texas Author

@A.A. Zavala...The clinic would have to be called "How To Become a Lemonade Stand Poet"...LOL! I am truly humbled by your remarks because I know so little about the art of poetry. I just write from my gut and try to make it understandable. I do that because I encounter poetry that I cannot decipher and I promised myself I would be straight up with it when I first tried it...so maybe that's material for the clinic, huh? Thanks much...I appreciate your words and your efforts to read my stuff. WB
