Invisible trash
Collectors of glowing,
Immaterial

And broken winged
Orbs, blue and green, pink and pure,
Depending on the

Imagination.
Do deer, with liquid brown eyes,
Windows to wild and

Meek souls, dream of green
-er meadows, stronger legs, or
A world without man?

Something I was thinking about, this one is in extended (?) haiku form. I wrote another in poem form, but I don't know if I'll submit it or not.

This was very... Interesting! I liked it, but the train of thought was difficult to follow. It's different than a lot of things I've read on here.

It can be so hard to find suitable accompanying pictures, unfortunately. :( I guess you will just have to linger upon the imagery of the poem, instead :)

That is high praise indeed, but higher still is the fact that you, yourself, like it, maybe even to the point of loving it.

You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.
Henry Drummond

This poem sounds like it could have been written by the poetic greats like Shakespeare, Sapphos,               Rainer Maria Rilke, Emily Dickinson...

THIS IS AWESOME! :)

Such beautiful imagery! I wish your picture was more beautiful though. :( 

I enjoyed this poem too!

"We are such stuff as dreams are made on." Forget Shakespeare. We know so little about the essence of dreams.

But you seem to know quite a lot. Well done...

A pleasantly startling reminder of your poetic brilliance, Stargirl. These lines were great material to take apart, look at curiously, shrug, then piece back together and smile in awe. I loved the last two stanzas especially.

Right back at you, Boo :)
