Lily of the Valley. About A Bright and Morning Star.
Moon Star, Way Up Far
A bright and morning star,
We climb the high clear mountain, we love to look afar.
We cast our eyes upward in the bright moonlight,
reflecting beauty my star, burning bright.
We know not yet where this journey leads, but destiny leads us on,
to keep searching within, without, through the colors of worlds just beyond.
we pause in thanksgiving, that we stopped here today
to ponder in your heavenly fragrance
in this our particular way.
we set out for the day, to discover mossy trees
To thank the sunshine, blue sky, and cold breeze,
life, it is worth living, if we do as we please.
We are a Lily of the Valley, oh how right you are,
the fragrance of your beauty I can’t capture in a jar
go little firefly, burn bright, illuminate my sight.
Lily of the Valley
Reach for the sky, come, ask me why.
One lily growing on the mountain way up high.
Where do you think you are going? asked a passerby.
Up to share the sun, so I can grow tall.
Up to find the hummingbirds that go away in fall.
Up to grow in a million colors, we are not too small.
We are lilies in a valley, heading for a mountain top
we are lilies in your garden, don't ask us to stop
we share our yellow gold nectar with the moon drop.

- What Is This Thing Called Poetry?
Free verse or free style as I'd much rather term is a form of poetry that does not adhere to any set pattern. Though it is considered "free" in its form there is still some elements that a poet must bind to due to convention.
So is that how you got your name
oh precious flower?
We like to think so,
we like to imagine, the star so far away we really can't see,
decided to find a way closer to our reality.
Gazing into the lilly, we can see the reflection there
Twinkling up from the flower, when we breathe the fragrance in
Bringing that star down closer, so we can look at the sparkling power.
