Starry Eyed: Napowrimo Day 3

My day three prompt, provided to us by NaPoWriMo participant Carla Jones. Today, I challenge you to take your gaze upward, and write a poem about the stars. You may find inspiration in this website that lists constellations, while also providing information on the myths associated with each one, as well as other salient information. Your poem could be informed by those myths or historical details, by the shapes or names of the constellations, or by childhood memories of seeing them. Any form or style will do.

Starry Eyed 

Beneath the stars

I fade away

Lose myself 

Between night and day

I drift along 

The Milky Way

I rearrange Orion’s Belt 

Ride on Pegasus 

Change how Virgos spelt

I switch around the sun and moon

And play with Jupiter 

Like its a big balloon

I use Saturns rings

Like a hollahoop 

Jump on star point

Past Mars I swoop

Then down to earth 

I gently glide

Back in my bed

Safe inside

The starry night

Still above

Flickering in my eye lids 

Starry dreams I love
