Starmaker Girl - Maker of Stars

Source

This love poem is written for a very special person, to whom I feel very close. I wrote StarMaker Girl as a tribute and offering for a special friendship that blossomed into Love. She is very sweet and so loving. She is a writer and talented published poet, with a beautiful heart. To her, I say thank you for everything... and this is for you, Fehl.

Starmaker Girl - Maker Of Stars

StarMaker Girl
Maker of stars –
make me a part of
your sky from afar –
light up the dark –
then show me the way –
to grow and to love –
and to worship and pray.

StarMaker Girl –
Maker of Stars –
who can’t quite decide –
twixt’ Venus and Mars –
your starMaker body –
and dark loving eyes –
you tingle my tummy –
with dark butterflies.

StarMaker Girl –
Maker of stars –
show me the wondrous
things that you are –
throw off your mantle
of Jewel-laden night –
then bare yourself to me –
and let us take flight.

StarMaker Girl –
the Maker of Me –
you trace me from root
to a sapling then tree –
star-studded sky –
with its Galaxies Prime –
you echo my friendship –
across space and time.

StarMaker Girl –
the Maker of Love –
you sent me a sparkle
of light from above –
you showed me your soul –
and gave me these notions –
you’re brimming with karma –
I’m swimming your oceans.

StarMaker Woman –
explorer of me –
you feel what I am –
as I float in your sea –
assessing your compass –
you’ve taken a fix –
like Armstrong, Gargarin,
and Hubble and Higgs.

StarMaker Girl –
you’ve taken my hand –
you wanted to kiss me -
and yes – now you can –
so I give you a rose –
and you give me a kiss –
then we merge and we float -
into ultimate bliss.

Dedicated to my wonderful Marifel Dungo, aka – Blaise25 on Hub Pages.

Beautiful tribute, my friend..

We do our star makers justice with our actions, as it seems too often our words fall short, but you, my friend prove to be the exception..

Wonderful...pounding buttons, my friend..

Wow! Thank you bbnix and Mentalist acer. I just made a coffee for Cheeky Girl and I, and next thing, I have two comments already. I only just published. Heh. ^_^

bbnix: your words are wonderful as always, and yes, my words hopefully do justice. I am working hard to eventually be that exception, but I am some way off yet. But I appreciate your lovely sentiment. Thank you for the button presses, don't hurt your hands. :)

Mentalist acer: I hope everyone likes my effort here, including Blaise (Fehl). She is a Starmaker to me. And although my imagination went wild here a bit, I am hoping she will smile. (crosses fingers) Thank you, acer! You are so kind. :)

Hugs for you both. ^_^

hi bbnix: I am looking forward to everyone seeing my poetry in the book finally. The superlative...the answer to that is another kind of question. Heh. ^_^

Hi Dim: umm, gentleness...wow, you are psychic...yes, it is gentle and some other things besides. LOL. It's written from the heart. It's part aspiration but also part reality too. And the person in the poem is very real to me... :) Thank you for the comments, Dim.

Hi astra,

Very beautiful poem, clear thoughts and you put your thoughts here very beautifully. Also a wonderful tribute to the person you wrote for. You do have a great poetic talent. Voting it up and clicking beautiful.

What a truly exquisite and thoroughly beautiful poem, you possess amazing talent Cathy. I think that your poetry really goes from strength to strength. What a wonderful tribute to your friend. Voting up, awesome and beautiful too!

Astra Nomik 5 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi sweetie1: my thoughts are putting the gun to my creative writing hand and telling it what to write, more like...LOL. Honestly, I prefer writing romantic poetry. It takes a beautiful person to make me want to write this way, sweetie. My older poetry about broken relationships are so depressing. This is my life now today, the new skin, the Butterfly that used to be the Caterpillar. LOL.

Thank you for the voting too. You are sweet. Your name suits you. ^_^

Hi acaetnna: you are always here to check out my poems. You get a hug from me. Thank you for being wonderful. :) My Starmaker girl is making a stir. Um, that almost sounds like another poem, doesn't it? Heh. Shows what happens when words come together a certain way. I love seeing the world through poetry.

So who wants to see poetry about politics? Thought not. LOL. If my strengths go up, maybe it is because I know my strengths and avoid things I am bad at writing. But yes, as you say, this is a tribute to my love for a wonderful friend. The poetry is as real as the person. I hope my feelings guide my heart as well as they do my pen...

Thank you acaetnna foe the votes and for your friendship. ^_^

Oh, Astra, how absolutely lovely! A better tribute couldn't be done! I appreciate your comment about ridding yourself of your caterpillar skin--neat metaphor! Anyway, love it!

Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 5 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi Teylina, it is about a lovely person...and she knows it. The best poetry is the poetry that comes from the heart.

Oh yes, I am glad you liked my saying that. I think we can all relate to the caterpillar changing to the butterfly. Some things happen in our lives and changes us just like the caterpillar.

You are a terrific writer. I love your hubs, and I am reading more. Thank you. :)

Hy Fehl (Blaise): Hehehe! Are you asking moi? ^_^

I bet you are smiling like crazy right now. So am I. LOL.

Hi Fay, wow, thank you so much for the nice comments, and vote. I am smiling now. :)

Hi Nikki, omg I should have fixed the name in the woman's photo there, it is not my picture. LOL. Sorry for confusion. Is just some gal from somewhere. I thought she looked very similar to the person in my poem. Ha. Thank you for the comments, my rhythm is good, I should have learned the drums...LOL. I do love rhyming poetry, it lends something to the message in the poem...

I love your compliment, Heh. Have a great day, Nikki. :)

bbnix 5 years ago from Southern California

No confusion Nikki...Cathy is stunningly beautiful...and, of course, smart as hell (much like yourself.. :)...)...just sayin'...ha ha ha .... "don't hate me I'm just the piano player.."...and driver...but noone likes being my passenger for some reason....maybe its the helmet...


Nikkij504gurl profile image

Nikkij504gurl 5 years ago from Louisiana

haha well you are still pretty and gorgeous and all that bb says your avatar is still you and i told you before your are beautiful! I thought that might be you too but if your friend looks like her well shes gorgeous too. lol and thanks bb. me and cathy will go for a ride, just dont kill us. lol

No worries...no deaths today, although I do come from and will return to hell one day...just hang on tight...


Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 5 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi bbnix, you are being SO complimentary today...wow. You are funny, I like that. Why would someone not like being your passenger? The Piano is better for you... :) LOL.

Nikki, aaw, you are so awesome to say that. You are so pretty too. :) Mwah. I love that you have a flower in your hair too, that is nice. Wow, you are sweet for saying that. I am smiling like crazy now. LOL. My friend, she does look similar to the photo, except her eyes are darker. She is gorgeous in reality. Heh.

Yes, BB, if we climb on the back of the bike, promise not to do doughnuts or crazy stuff, okay? No deaths around here please... Daredevil man. ^_^

ha ha ha...no crazy...I do play a sweet tune though...but wait till you see me dance...DD man...;)

Thanks astra I just put the flower there for the photo I wanted a new pic for hubpages lol and I had a flower to use as a prop. glad you like it.

If we are to ride with u bb we are gonna need helmets too. I dont know about you and the piano but it would probably be a lot safer lol.


bbnix 5 years ago

hah...no worries..i'll supply helmets, fire suits, everything you need... careful though, the piano's not safer, its a path to your hearts... hear the music though? - how about we just enjoy this very special dance..my very special, beautiful friends...


Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 5 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Bbnix, tune or no tune, there's a time for piano, and then there's time for biking. LOL. When you have 2 chicks on the back of a bike, you can't bring your piano. LOL. Wonder what kind of tunes you play on Piano? Are you ballad, jazz blues or classical? Ha. You dance too? LOL. Funny.

Nikki, you remind me of the song about San Francisco, "...remember to put some flowers in your hair.." LOL. :)

Ooh helmets are a must...you know men on bikes...LOL. Um piano on bike is a no. Would unbalance everything. LOL. But I like the idea. :) Is funny.

Bbnix: um ...firesuits? Okay when I said Daredevil, I did not mean I am volunteering for fire of death or anything. LOL. Piano sounds nicer... :) We need a tune...maybe a nice tune to go with my StarMaker poem or something... Heh. Aw, you are sweet... (smiling now..)Nikki, we should put in requests... LOL.


Nikkij504gurl profile image

Nikkij504gurl 5 years ago from Louisiana

he should play that san fran song. since i never heard it. I wish I could play piano...or guitar. I love a good guitar solo, and if the guy is hot thats doing well thats just a bonus. I could fall in love. wish my boyfriend played. wish he was more rocker too, but I love him. any who... yea Idk about firesuits, unless they make us look hot as hell, tight red leather jumpersuit,, and a fire helmet...hmm sounds like something from a sexy models calendar. and high heels. we should pose next to the piano... lol

This very strange helmeted piano player is singing to you too..perhaps a little muffled but my love is true...great writers you all are...what next...hmmmmm

I noticed I failed to mention Cathy's tribute to Blaise25, a most incredible writer....stunning...watching her closely..she smartly knows nothing of me...

Okay Nikki this is a very sexy image of 2 women in tight suits like in the posters in the workshop. Ho have you not heard that song, the guy's name is Scott somebody or other, it was a song in the 1960's, and it's one I like. Love and Peace. LOL. OMG red tight leather , guitar solos, when is Billy Idol arriving? Heh. That image is melting my brain now. Ha. No I have forgotten the piano now... LOL. What a naughty mind you have, Nikki. LOL.

BBnix, you are responsible for all this. Putting these images in my commenter's minds. Oh there IS an image? A painting? Can you put it in a hub? I'd like to see it. See what all the fuss is about. Nikki and I are getting all steamed up about this. LOL.

Maybe we need a slow ballad to chill out now. Heh.

Hi Bella, this poem about my Starmaker Girl got a bit way-layed by these comments. Ha. Wow, you really liked this poem. Well, I will be doing more, since all my poetry is romantic. :) Thank you for this. ^_^

BBnix, yes you didn't mention my tribute to Blaise. She is awesome, and a great poet too. You should read her amazing hubs and poems. She knows nothing of you? Oh, you mean you haven't seen her hubs? Wow, get over and check out her brilliant hubs and poetry, pleeeease? She is magical! Thank you. :D

Hi Maita. (Hugs you) Thank you for checking out my new poem. How are things? I hope you are well. Best wishes. x

Wow, this poem is certainly popular today. Thank you everyone.

Hah...responsible - yes, but of course - I am in love... THE painting! - it's beautiful!!...already indelible in my heart..with much resolve to share it with you when soon painted..

Blaise...oh my..a few moments with her has led to much determination to spend many hours in follow - she's amazing. Thanks for the beautiful guidance to her..

Hi bbnix: I have to see some of your art now. I am impressed. :) Please check out Blaise's fantastic hubs. I think you will like her poetry especially, if you like mine. She is totally awesome. She is "...the guidance" in her own right... ^_^

Ah L'amor. :D


bbnix profile image

bbnix 5 years ago from Southern California

Ok...

If I like yours?...perhaps, I'm not making myself clear (I often get that), you're a hell of a lot more than a pretty face (devastatingly beautiful, better said)..your writing is to die..literally (what a way to go..hah..=P..)..just incredible!!!

So, given all that, I might as well put a down payment on that coffin (with flames and a ferrari graphic, no less, but no hurry, though) as I'm definitely looking forward to reading Blaise...

I need all the guidance I can get, I think...ha ha ha.. =) =P ;) :)

P.S. wrapping up some business projects, but soon to my art...hold on to you hat...

hugs...

Astra Nomik 5 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Trying not to blush at your comments now, bbnix. Devastatingly? Are you sure you got the right hubber here? LOL. Oh I thought you had akready read Blaise's work. Oh you are missing out on some really awesome writing. She even has a book of her wonderful poetry published. :)

I have some poetic guidance on my website if you want inspiration. I'm doing a poetry appreciation course on it for people such as you. LOL. (Shameless plug)

Okay, I will wait for your amazing art as well. :D

Hi Scarface 1300, I loved your movie. It was brutal and gorey as hell. Okay I'm kidding. If you were really Al Pacino, I'd faint. LOL. Thank you for loving my poetry. Well, I am feeling kind of happy now. This has been a good day, in several ways. (Just got invited to a guest writing spot...) Your timing is great. You have let me end my Saturday on a cheery note.

....your writing here is like an early career female David Bowie - quite a compliment I would imagine because Bowie always managed to transcend, like you do, mere ordinary feelings by those of us who are delegated to live on planet earth, this is the divine poetic stuff of dreams and stars in another galaxy only visited by special people like you ..... lake erie time ontario canada 4:45am


Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 5 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi Colin, oh what a lovely thing to say. :) Thank you Mr Epi. Comparing me to David Bowie? Um... I honestly don't think I am anything as good as him, but he is transcendental, I agree with you. In my poems, the feelings are real to me, and maybe it is the inspiration behind the love or passion that somehow feeds into it. The Woman behind my Starmaker poem is so very real, believe me. And she is very special too. :)

Congratulations on hitting the 100 score on Hubs, Colin. Hugs from me.

Hi Frankie, what a lovely way to describe this poem. I admit that I do have a thing for um... heavenly bodies. LOL.

Stars and amazing things that fall from the skies... sometimes right into my lap or my life... and making such a difference... you are right, it is a tribute for the love of a wonderful lady. And yes, she is very blessed in so many ways. And I feel so blessed knowing her too...

Have a sweet day, Frankie. :)
