Sipping from a Cosmic Cup

thirsty gazing towards the evening sky
wishing for a sip from the cosmic cup
too many questions a heart wonders why
thirsty gazing towards the evening sky
blush of color, shooting star passes by
from that special place, a song rises up
thirsty gazing towards the evening sky
wishing for a sip from the cosmic cup

~
star child wanders lost in the universe
waiting for her dragon to fly her home
singing  from her heart in poetic verse
star child wanders lost in the universe
celestial beings, souls softly converse
seeking light, under a heavenly dome
star child wanders lost in the universe
waiting for her dragon to fly her home

  2. The good thing about a Triolet is the repetitions. It emphasized the points better as one goes along. Wonderful write Truedessa!

  17. Such a poignant poem - i think perhaps when we are at our most vulnerable we are all children looking for our dragons to carry us to a safe place - a home
