“A sprinkle of hope” (Prompt 24 words) POEM 12

Hope, merely stardust.
The moon slivered cheese as I dream of sleep and removing my shoes.
Silhouettes of trees
backlight by the suns return.
How often we forget
that the sun is static,
constant.
It is we who move away from
and back towards its warmth.
chasing lost goals
into the cool darkness of night.
disregarding the lies we know as truth.
Hope, merely stardust.

————————————–
Tell me once again
sweet lies of forgetfulness
as i search for me
stardust beaming like new hope
old pains kindling my rebirth

revelations after dark
Teslas numbers whispering
Hope, merely stardust.

  1. I loved this repeating line, ‘Hope, merely stardust’ and how it became even more poignant when finishing the tercet at the end of the poem:
    ‘revelations after dark
    Teslas numbers whispering
    Hope, merely stardust.’

    1. Thank you for checking it out and your kind review. Also, guess I know how you do a tercet! Ha! I write. It’s all I do. I rarely revise anything and often don’t even know what I’ve written until I read it later. TMI! Thanks again
