Star Dust.

I bet it tastes like life;

Love,
Joy,
Feeling,
Thought.

I hope it smells like Wonder;

Philosophy,
Mystery,
And Curiosity.

I think it feels like Wanderlust;

Galaxy-exploring,
Rocket-shipping,
Travel-inducing.

I can hear its song;

A lovely lullaby,
Song of Ages,
The Tune of Light.

I know it looks like Hope;

A light in the dark,
A spot of beauty,
A dash of glitter.

I can feel its glow;

Spinning a web of energy,
Pulling the curtain aside,
Letting me know

That I’m never alone.

This poem is very serene, I love it!! I sensed a little bit of magic in it, with all the talk of stardust ;) I also loved your use of the word "wanderlust"!! :) My favorite stanza was the one about our visual sense. I really like the way you described stardust as looking like Hope, and I especially loved the line "a dash of glitter," simply because I love glitter...and it makes me very very very happy whenever someone mentions it :3 Haha it's a little bit of a weakness I have...lol But another thing that I thought was unique about this poem, was the theme that you used. So many people talk about stars in poetry, but you focused on stardust, which I think is so unique and out-of-the-box! I love it!! Thank you so much for posting this, Liv, it's really very beautiful and you should be proud! :D
