Stars



drunk lights looking down
they have their problems too
some will blow up others will wane
yet others will be eclipsed
maybe there are patterns there,
virgo, taurus, dipper, gemini,
that give us hope
maybe we stare at them because
they are a reflection of us.

hey....why is my comment not showing!!!!??????

Mosilager said...

anonymous - yeah probably I should... half hour of playing with the gingaboo... stars are individually brilliant but if we organise them into constellations it makes a story, like people, individually brilliant but need a community that supports and encourages to make any difference in the world. at least that's what i was trying to say in the poem... sorry if I didn't make it quite right. how would you improve it?

ramya - unfortunately i do all of those things badly :) jack of all and master of none syndrome. but thanks a lot!
i think blogger was down for a bit that's why your comments did not show.

video stole my line!

but nice poem. thesis writing has only inspired unlady-like language from me.. :-)

Mosilager said...

There's plenty of that going around also TGFI, just doesn't show up on a 'family oriented' blog like this one ;) Besides, I only use unladylike words when the person I'm speaking to cannot understand the language... that way they will still share their goodies from home with me.

Or maybe we try to see ourselves in everything that we see..

Mosilager said...

yup that we do... the urge to anthropomorphise (?) everything is too great, we make humans out of cars and dogs and even computers these days.
