A Puddle Full Of Stars

A Puddle Full Of Stars

A Poem by Lathen Griffiths

There’s a puddle full of stars,
on a verge made of mud,
next to a road,
that leads all the way home,
but if I stop to stare,
at a puddle full of stars,
then which way from there,
will I roam?

If my eyes look out,
on an ocean so vast,
yet are betwixt
the sand and the foam,
should I maybe now,
my anchor cast,
for which way from there
will I roam?

Who could not appreciate the beauty of stars in a dark velvet sky,? I love that they were reflected in a muddy puddle by the side of the road. I think it would be very easy to anchor where there is sea, sand and a great expanse of star studded sky. Sounds perfick to me. Visually stunning Lathe. Happy Friday.

poetic journeys like this are beautiful, I never map a journey, how boring is that? just go and you will find what you didn't know what you were looking for. :) Loved it

a star led three wise men on a journey....a metaphorical puddle of stars can lead us on a journey...
shall we pull up anchor and cross that ocean of life?
take a chance the sail will hold, and our inner compass will work well enough to guide us.
Those stars certainly know the way.

Lathen.
A magical piece of poetry Lathen. Seems we both were inspired by all the beautiful stars in the sky. I had wrote a haiku on it. Two poetic minds separated by an ocean yet viewing the wonder of the same heavenly body above. That is the wonder of poetry, my friend.

I was picturing the vastness of space reflected within that first glance and the traveler stalled for direction. Till he gazes up to see little bear pointing the way.
