stars Pictures, Images and Photos

A distant star in wonder,
in confusion observes...me.
In perplexity twinkling she watches
as I swerve from here to there,
mostly going nowhere
but determined to excell
in making sure all goes well.

"Look at me!!!" she shouts
trying in vain to point out
that there's no need to look
so hard for something so obvious,
so clear, we could not exist without.

"Just enjoy life!!!" she says,
Things look different from up here.
Nothing is as it seems,
all is fine,
you'll be okay.
Don't resist,
let it flow.

Make decisions you must,
but just know we are the same,
a fragment of some Universal game.
Are you surprised to learn,
that light in you and me burns,
lit by the same flame?"


This was written for one shot poetry.


  1. Things look different from up here...thanks for sharing a glimpse of the sparkling stars with us..who whisper their words...nice one shot myrna - glad you're on board again!

  6. A calming effect shines through your lines. Nice work.

  7. love it!!! it is so ensuring and liberating to know that we are just a tiny little piece - and that our problems are only as big as we want them to be (or let them be)!! Is like twinkle twinkle for the enlighted ;)

  8. I've never thought of stars looking at us -- you've turned stargazing on its head. Good one.

  9. Myrna, for the first time I have seen someone addressing a star with a gender! And another first is: We always talk of watching the stars but here it is a different case.

    You sure are a great writer.

    I loved this piece. Felt in union with all of the universe.

    Joy and peace,

  10. wow...it reminds me of the greek gods sitting in the clouds playing chess with our souls....being watched from above...whilst at the same time playing on the fact that what is one person in the scheme of things and yet to that one person they are everything..cheers pete

  11. Dear Myrna
    A beautiful take on life and interestingly, this is something that I have had tried in my own One Shot for this week.
    The idea to just enjoy life is great and a profound one, in all our business, we forget simple things ... like just enjoying life as it unfolds...
    Yes we are all same too... Same source of energy all around...

  14. I love the line "don't resist, let it flow". Reminds me of the old saying "whatever you resist persists." Falling into the flow and trusting you will be taken to exactly where you need to be is so empowering.
