    dots"Stairway To The Stars"dots

    There's a winding Starlit Stairway
    that leads up to the Stars
    it has magic starlit steps
    and its' banisters have Starlit Bars

    and beyond the Stars, the Heavens
    beckon magically
    they offer mortals certain hope
    for all eternity

    The Stairs are not just for
    the rich
    but they're for us
    one and all

    they're there to use
    for those of us
    who hear a higher

    the call is inspiration
    a want to better be
    a need to elevate oneself
    to a better place to see

    To find the stairs
    one needs but hope
    and wish out to
    the Stars

    and aspire to do things
    to be all one

    then close your eyes
    and fervently
    reflect on your desires
    believe that it is possible
    to have what hope requires

    this done then take
    with hope and faith
    the step from here to there
    the first transforming trembling step
    upon the Starlit Stair!

      Really inspirational, beautifully written Ron
    your stairway to Heaven is the only path to follow.

    " Seek and you will find"
    "Knock and the door will open"
    " ask and you will receive"

    from the Bible.

      Ron, this is absolutely beautiful, and I am so honored to have it dedicated to me. Thank you my dear friend! I'll have to get this on my favs list asap. You have so much written, I got a lot of work to read here. I guess you never heard of "writer's block"! I don't have much time today, but at least I know where to go to find something good to read!

    I knew you would have a poem about stars that would say exactly what I felt in my heart about those heavenly bodies...
    and here it is!
    I wonder, do we find inspiration by looking up, or are we inspired by hopes and dreams and then gaze skyward?
    A bit of a chicken and egg puzzle, maybe, but I think its important.
    The sky and all it's wonders often confirms my hopes, as well as inspiring me to strive for more depth and beauty in my life...
    and often, life will inspire me to reach for more, and I'll look to the sky,
    as if to read my dreams emblazoned across the velvet darkness. As if the universe would raise my hopes with a winking star.
    Which is basically what happened,
    and inspired me to write a journal entry,
    and set me to looking for similar thoughts.

    Thanks for sharing your starry hopes, Ron. They're quite beautiful in your prose.

      Well, Ron, you were right. This one did remind me of my 'bout with depression. I connected to the fact that it was Heaven waiting at the end of the stairs for when I went through depression I felt many a times I would never be allowed in Heaven; that I was not good enough to be in Heaven.

    It seemed to really speak to me about how I had to climb up to Heaven from the gates of Hell I had been in. It was all most a symbol of everything I went through. It was so true.

    You did a wonderful job on this one. It was beautiful, inspirational, and astounding. I would have to say you did quite wonderful on this piece; as the others before me have written.

    It was a poem to give hope to the hopeless, peace to the peaceless, and serenity to those with only chaos. I'll give you five stars. Hands down one of the best I've read that reminded me about my struggle through depression. For it did not only dwell on the depression, but the aftermath. The rising upwards of that person's spirit to a greater self, a greater calm.

    Great Job, Ron

      The Starlit Stairway is soooo beautiful. I wish to find my stairway to my heaven too. This is a really great poem. Giving people hope, telling people the importance of having a dream in life. I am so embarrassed with my "I Have A Dream" because it is such a childish way to say what I wanted to say..> W <

    Thanks, I learned a lot from you, And I must say you have a very beautiful mind!

      Ron I just really connected to this piece because I live my life in such a way of faith and dreaming and I do believe that anything is possible - I love hope, faith, inspiration and all the ideas and symbolic meanings the stars have for each of us.
    love,peace,joy&smiles to share

      Been some time since I read one of your works.
    I'm appreciative of the message here. Very appreciative, been going through a tough spot and your writing as always gives an insightful view into all things positive (not saying it's wrong of course!) Thoroughly enjoyable and very uplifting, you have simply opened a doorway through which all can walk through.

    Well this finds its way into my favourites for sure.
    Have fun and take care

      Magical and beautiful, this poem is absolutely amazing, but I am wondering what inspired you to write something like this. This submission seemed very peaceful and made me smile. I could almost see everything you where describing in my minds eye. An orginal peice of work yet very unique!

      Well done! You have convinced me to take that step. Your poem is encouraging, hopeful, and a "magical" read. During this season when life renews itself as nature awakens and blooms, it seems especially fitting to read and write uplifting poetry. That's my next step and I'm ready. Enjoyed this one lots! :-) Sharon

       I agree with michelle - just reading this made me feel more optomistic. I was a lil blue as ive just had to say goodbye to someone on the phone(ish) that i wont get to talk to for another 4 days (i used to get to talk to him every day but nowhe's in the army exept on weekends, exept this week, when he gets off early because of easter :D ) anyhoo, yea you've cheered me up. Ive also been contemplating the future alot recently and you've really taken the nervousness out of it for me. Brilliant poem Ron. Really beautiful, you've outdone yourself once again.

    keep in touch

    i want to take the first step on this starlit stairway to the stars, so i'm gonna.....i'll let ya know how i see things from there...everyone's vision will be different!
