Destiny Written in Stars: a Poem

Updated on July 30, 2017
ValKaras profile image

Val is a life-long student of the psycho-philosophy of living and a devoted practitioner of many techniques that enhance personal evolution.

On so many starry nights

all curious as I could be

I'm searching in those twinkling lights

for the mystery of me.


But, as always they stay mute

secretive as ever

winking and a kind of cute

and telling me to get clever.


Truth of me is not up there

written in those jewels of night

so I should look for it elsewhere

if I want to get it right.


And yet, those stars keep teasing me

with their mysterious look,

what if a key that's hard to see

could open their book.


I look around, I look inside,

and then to my delight

my truth comes smoothly out of hide

all clear and so bright.


Romantic moonlight in its glory

mirrored in my youthful glee

reads aloud my secret story

of the path destined for me.

      Paula---I am happy that stars from my poem succeeded to blend with those ones you watched sprinkled with the 4th of July fireworks. Good night my dear friend.

      Nice poem, Val. Just the perfect words to end my day in peace with a smile. I watched all the fireworks this evening...the colorful sparkle among the stars... wishing you well, Paula

      Beautiful imagery, Val. I can just see the stars. But today you have to live in the country to see them because those beautiful twinkles are blotted out by city lights and only fireflies remain. (We call them "lightening bugs" where I live.)

      Ryan---It's so great to discover more souls who enjoy the romantic ambient of the moonlight---and I am happy that my poem helped in that discovery.

      There is nothing better than a night under the stars with a bright moon to keep you company. Great poem. I enjoyed the details and the words you chose to paint such a beautiful picture in my mind.
