The Stars are Hidden

The Stars are Hidden

A Poem by An owl on the moon

On my night’s walk through the snow ‘neath clouded skies…



The Stars are hidden

Past veiled, lace-woven clouds

Misted, muted light

On gardens of white ice…

Yet I see them glowing

In my mind’s eye

As in dreams

That ride on wings of doves…

Now step-stepping onward

The only sound my footsteps

Still.. still.. still.. they sing…

And all nature sleeps

In silent slow slumbers

As I waltz drifting

On snowy stone…

I hold a tenderness inside

In mystery of my muse

Yet am fierce as fire

Unyielding my dreams

Clinging like sea to shore

Unrelenting my will…

The stars are hidden

Yet I see them still…

Awe yes you put so eloquently into words how just because it can't been seen doesn't mean it don't exist... like love and faith... dreams too can never been seen fully just in bits as you build toward making it come true.
Top notch writing again sir.

It reminds me of the 1800's somehow. Like victorian lace maybe. It makes me feel pretty to, in an odd way. I feel enchanted and dark. Like I want to go frolicing through the foggy forest in nothing but a black lacy dress. Idk thats how it made me feel.

I find this to be a beautiful and touching piece of poetry which certainly has an old world feel to it, like something one of the classic poets would write. It seems to speak of more than just a walk through the snow and captures a timeless feel that is rare in poetry today. Very lovely, thank you for sharing.

Flows beautifully and very mystical. I love the last two lines especially, suggesting that you carry the impression inside regardless of what appears in nature. Nice work!

Once you again you show how one can paint amazingly with words. Folks usually say that a picture is worth a thousand words (which is true) however, what is less spoken of is the gallery of images that a mere handful of words can provoke. The landscape here is so subtle and delicate and full of a rare mystique which altogether seems like an intuition or a feeling. Nice work. Cheers!

Wonderful poem, able to transport any one of us who like a walk in the darkness, enjoying what only quiet nature can provide. I been there and seen the softness of the hidden light, able only to reveal the world by the presence of the whiteness of the snow. Enjoyable, Thanks.

Yes, I agree with CB, so eloquent, yet has a dreamy feel.
Oh, but the things we see and hear as writers, more intuned
to these things that most miss.

2018 was a journey through my poetic novel, An Owl on the Moon. 2019 will find me going back to a deep inspiration for me... Wonderland... The night has a thousand eyes, And the day but one; .. more..
