Imagine If...

Imagine If...

A Poem by GardenDelights
"

Imagine if a man pulls down a star and becomes acquainted with its uniqueness and personality.

"

Imagine if a man could pluck a star out of the night sky 

Rolling it up in verdant green sheets of grass and wildflowers 

          peeled from a nearby hillside,

Topping that with a bow crafted from a sinuous ribbon 

          of sparkling water

Then toss it your way! 

Would you catch it or let it fall?

Would you grab it firmly in both hands and hug it tightly 

          to your chest? 


Oh, see what’s happened! The wrapping has loosened

And radiant slivers of starlight are emerging out 

          between the sheets of grass!

Go ahead! Unwrap your gift and let it shine for you!

Do you feel the earth respond? 

Feel its quivering excitement at the closeness of 

          the star’s light?

All of nature stands alertly at attention, arms spread wide

Receiving every precious bit of illumination from this 

          glittering jewel come down from the dazzling expanse 

          of the glittery night sky.


Never has creation been so privileged, so honored by 

          a star’s presence!

And you, do you feel it, too?

Feel captured by the moment, engulfed by the vision of 

          earth, star, and sky

Closing the gap, the distance between themselves 

Until you are cloaked in starlight and velvet

Giddy at their oh-so-soft, affectionate touch on your cheek 

Warmed by the earth

Tickled by the wildflowers 

Awash in their fresh scent

Granted a peacefulness of soul in seeing all of these 

          creations converging contentedly upon you, 

          embracing you, accepting you, loving you.

All that and more when two make magic. Such a tranquil display of emotions set in fine, warm phrasing. How lucky the best poets/writers are in being able to use their skills in creating passion out of twenty six letters whenever they need.
