A Poem by Judy Ponceby

I discovered a star

shiny and bright.

It burned from within
with glorious light.

I watched as it flared 
bright orange then red.
It burst from my hand 
and as it fled,

It sparkled and shone, 
flying away with a trail
That left me in wonder 
as I watched it set sail.

On beyond Saturn 
and way past Pluto,
seeking its fortune 
it continued to flow.

Silently sailing vast 
light years away
Inspiring adventure 
in every way.

Simply like us we go forth in a shard of sparks to try our wings How grand it is to watch our own children step out on their own and fly.I remember when My own daughter left home i wore a strong face but i couldnt hide the tear on my cheek for her

I like the places you took me with your poem. Sometime a night sky or a sun rising in the sky can awake dreams and hope. Thank you for a outstanding poem.

Nice imagery of the celestial type. The heavens give us so much inspiration.
