You Are My Shining Star.

Updated on January 14, 2014

Oh yes as sure as the sunshine

Or as green as the meadow.

Come out and share with me

Our delight can only grow.

In my valley of flowers

With such a sweet scent.

The colours bright and vibrant

With one shimmering intent.

I smile fondly and recall.

Those daft and happy days.

So magnified and cherished

We enjoyed their ways.

That sprinkling of glitter

Down from heaven above.

So joyful is my vision

So eternal is our love.

As I carry out my chores

My heart will again sing.

So bright each horizon

Happy thoughts they bring.

So it's the end of an era

Just look back and remember .

How safe those happy thoughts

Ours to cherish forever.


The sounds of the sea

is music to my heartstrings

changing it's Tempo

with great softness and ease

Beginning in a sway, so Pianissimo

before working into an impressive Pianississimo !!

Slowly but surely

moving onwards to a Mezzo Forte

alternating to a rapid and powerful Fortissimo !!!!!!

Swelling and nearing the heavens above

way above ech heart and soul

exploding into an impressive Fortississimo !!

Those lifebuoys swaying to a tone

so Prestissimo

dancing a rhythm so suited to my heartstrings.

The sea's ebbing and flowing

magnetise and form each day

beginning with a Largo so slow

swelling to heights of Accelelrando !!!

Distant sounds intervening

so very gentle,

Rising, spraying happiness up to the heavens

in a burst of easy Moderato !!

The rock pools a-glistening

like numerous music notes


dancing so lively

to their own clear Forte.

Each fishing boats bobs up and down

caressing each wave


settle into a relaxing Adagio.

The waves gather their bewitching powers

beginning in a kindly Largetto

which swells to an impressive Adante.

Nearer they approach our shores

so clear

an Andante becoming a faster

Presto !!!


strengthening in awesome force


foam spraying





strongly and surely

approaches faster,faster into a Molto !!

Before finally

exploding into our shores

in a magnificent CRESCENDO!!!


Stars are a-winking

In the dark of the night

A kaleidoscope of hues

Such an awesome sight.


Dear heart

I'm filled with joy

There is so much beauty

In a cascade of shooting stars

Blossoming up to the heavens so high

Angels songs so heartfelt and beautiful

A spirit calls out to us all

Oh how I truly love

You have shown me

Dear heart.




Into the night

Such a glowing magic

Light up with that magnetic haze

Each dark crevice now a wondrous new world

My spirit dances to the tune

My heart soars up above

True mixtures of




Purples and deep pinks

To treasure and to cherish

Safe in our hearts.


A virginal glimpse

Such purity so serene

Thoughts oh so peaceful.


Music from the heart

Simply bathe in the glory

Wondrous bright new dawns.


The Serenity Prayer.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.

      The serenity prayer is my favorite among many. Happy you included it at the end of your beautiful poetry. Your pictures are amazing. I downloaded the site to do that but i'm unsure of the technique, but one of these days i will experiment. Cheers my friend...

      I was going to suggest exactly the same thing that Writer Fox recommended. Just how do you take nice photos and do what you do to them? Gorgeous!

      Just beautiful, Eddy! Love the poems and the use of the musical terms like the rise and fall of the sea waves. I read it to the accompaniment of the video and it was a real joy.

      You have done it again Eiddwen. You taken a group of words and turned them into a beautiful poem.

      I tried to write poetry once and did not think that I could write or read it, but yours has changed my liking to read it. :-)
