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!
another fantastic one, made me want to walk up them. you made it seem so peaceful. thank you very much for the beatiful words. not many people in this world can do what you do with words and your feelings.
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.
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
Your words alwys inspiring my friend and they show such hope for the dreams and goals you set for life becuse anything is possible if you only believe you can achieve it and in this poem you surely show tht all things can be achieved my friend. very inspiring poem and another to add to my favs by you.
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!
What a lovely poem, Ron! This poem really makes one want to excel and achieve more in life..yup, the twinkling stars certainly remind us that there's always a higher, bigger goal to be achieved...you have expressed this so beautifully through this poem, Ron.
I enjoyed reading this! : )
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.
i feel full of hope and optimism now. chances and oppertunities are there to be grasped, dreams and aspirations there to be achieved...if we believe in ourselves, i guess.
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!
this is a 'feel good' poem....you know your readers will have a more empowered feeling about them...at least i do, anyway.
awesome write...great work!
