Glittering dimness

I've been known for standing still 
in the crowd long enough to draw its sounds,
get lost. 

He's been known for going places,
talking to strangers, sunflowers, bridges
getting lost.

For some time we kept a trail of stars 
pinned to the sky like crumbs
pointing the way home.


  1. I absolutely love this stanza:
    "For some time we kept a trail of stars
    pinned to the sky like crumbs
    pointing the way home."

  2. This really draws interest. I want to know more. :)

  3. Tossed like bread crumbs. Now we need the star eater to ...

  4. Oh wow...I simply love your ending

  5. Similarities and differences are irrelevant if there is mutual understanding. You depict this relationship with a light touch on the emotional content which makes it all the more authentic.

  6. Such a heart-warming poem! I love how you described the differences between the two... perhaps they shall create a spark between them?

    Beautifully written... absolutely remarkable! :D

  7. this one will linger ~

  8. We are all lost in one way or another at one time or another.

  9. You are good, girl! This is a great piece. I think it is time you published something in a book. I read and enjoy a lot of poetry, and yours stands out. Kudos.
