A Luring Home in Heavens---a Poem

Magic Is the Night with all Those Inviting, Winking Stars.
Magic Is the Night with all Those Inviting, Winking Stars.

Countless flickering diamonds sprinkled up above

in a starry night enchanting and calling

with something outlandish like a bizarre love

sending me messages with every star falling.

Sweet mystery overwhelming at times like tonight

million question-marks hanging from each star

and yet, something so familiar at every sight

like a long lost home luring from afar.

And then my eyes drop down, unwilling like with sores,

just to face a graveyard of questions left to die,

unattended, shunned, with all that hate, greed, wars,

giving inspiration for another trembling sigh.

Maybe this is why all beautiful creatures

like goddesses and angels, and gods of every name,

along with each and every ascended teacher

chose to dwell in heavens---avoiding the same.

But then again, this vast, and sure empty space

this inspiration for loving and solemn prayers

maybe looks much better from this well known place

with all crazy gamut of human affairs.

So, even if your heart holds keys to a home above

don't rush to get there, be a little of a clown,

forget about hate, indulge some more in love

and keep me company, for I only qualify for "down".

      "Countless flickering diamonds sprinkled up above

      in a starry night enchanting and calling"....I loved the images that came.

      What I read here was let's not waste time to wanting to being somehwere else. It can be fun where we are. Although the other was described beautifully by you.

      Three Keys---Your interpretation is right, with a little addition that would refer to all those very religious folks who may unconsciously program themselves for a "premature exit to heavens". (Our body obeys our beliefs).

      This world reminds me of a beautiful rose garden mixed with thorns. Even with all the ugliness you can still see the beauty. The most freeing day of my life is when I decided because I wouldn't live forever on this earth, I would not allow the cares of this world to mess me up. Life is too short and I don't want to get to the end of my life and look back to see that all I did was worry and never enjoyed my time here.

      Dana---You keep impressing me with you wisdom. You said it so beautifully. If I ever write my biography, words like that may be at the very front cover, right under its title, because that's exactly what I have felt for the most of my adult life.

      Thank you.

      This was like reading a magical tale, and I loved it. " Question-marks hanging from each star. " How many times have I looked up at the heavens and wondered? Beautiful poetry!

      Ruby Jean----You are just as romantic as I am; maybe because our youth made us that way with all that sweet music, and with every moonlight that had a meaning worth taking into an old age.
