    dotsDivining the Starsdots

    The stars are cast
    along the ink black night
    snowflakes glittering
    glass runes shimmering
    Constellations I do not recognise
    so I connect and reconnect
    "broken heart"
    "butterfly ghost"
    with imaginary lines

      You have a very good poem here. See if you like this idea though.

    The stars are cast
    along the ink black night
    (Let's not give the reader "stars" or "night" Let's make em figure it out!)
    snowflakes glittering
    glass runes shimmering
    Constellations I do not recognise
    (we leave in "constellations", that's their key to figure out the whole poem)
    so I connect and reconnect
    "broken heart"
    "butterfly ghost"
    with imaginary lines
    (love it, now for the first two lines
    come up with some metaphor for stars
    and you can keep the ink black, but skip night, and don't use sky either, that's
    too direct. Maybe something like
    "beckoning beacons on an ink black sea"
    that's not very good, I don't want to do it for you, just point you off in the general direction. You mentioned this is in re write so I'll watch N' wait!

      Heh. This is so cute. There are so many constellations out there and some share stars...maybe it is easier to make your own ones. No broken hearts, just complete ones are up in the heavens.

    For the heck of it, one day i got this astronomy book and started to learn the constellations and the greek myths behind them. Its real interesting stuff. Can't really see them too well here cuz of the pollution from the city, airport, and train station. Tragic.

      Playing connect the dots with the stars is a wonderful and calmingly spirtual pasttime that I often enjoy.

    You stated in your description that the piece was not finished. I would love to see it expanded upon and given more depth. Isay that for selfish reasons. I merely would like to be captured in its mystical charms for a while longer.
