Stars

A poem

Two stars diverge sending each other down to earth like eagles mating gripping each other so hard that before they descend and hit the ground they turn into dust. As all the stars shine and shimmer with a shine so big it blinds eyes.

The portal of time, a hole, may it be a dimension to another world? Might it have different forms of life? Or does it hold the keys to the past as you turn the engine?

May it be a beach of darkness or is it truly where your body is when you pass away.

Still a star inside, you shine, a star big enough to fill this sad place with colors and light up the world.

Are all the stars just a puzzle or are they illusions that move and move as you play the game, the game of life?

    Britty . . . . I am so blown away by this poem. These are very big thoughts for a young boy. Contemplating the stars’ place in the universe in relation to our own is a big idea — as is your analogy to the starlight within people as being the light that brings the world alive. I hope you are shining inside with pride right now . . . I know I am . . but I always am . . .. love – your Mom

    Love it! Keep up the good work. You’re going to do big things. Correction. You’re already doing them.

    Hi Brit,

    I love this poem! You pack so many ideas in here…that I am still thinking about. There are so many big questions about stars. I don’t think I will ever see stars in the quite the same way, I will hear the questions this poem asks every time I look up into the night sky!

    Amazing writing! I am so proud of you!

    I really like this poem Brit. I am glad you wrote it and I had the opportunity to read it. I will be thinking about it as I look out at the stars tonight.

    Brit,
    Grandma read this poem and it was hard for me to believe that you are only in the third grade. This is a poem with lots of thought. I am wondering how you got to that. Anyway, I will share with grandpa. Keep up the good work! Grandma misses you and loves you very much.

    See you soon,

    Wow, Brit. I am stunned by the depth of your poem. I like how in each stanza you explore a different aspect of your thinking: sometimes you make a declaration, “Still a star inside, you shine, a star big enough to fill this sad place with colors and light up the world…” and sometimes you question, “Might it have different forms of life?” As someone who loves poems, I feel very well fed after reading yours. I am in awe of the extended metaphor in your first stanza and am inspired by your declaration that I, the reader, can possibly light up the world. A beautiful piece. Thanks for sharing it with the world.

    All best,
    Stacey Goldblatt (friend of Ms. Douillard’s)

    Dear Brit!
    I like your poem for lots of reasons (like “it’s really good!”), but what I especially like is this part —

    “Still a star inside, you shine, a star big enough to fill this sad place with colors and light up the world.”

    I love this! It makes me HAPPY to read this!

    Your poem had me thinking so many good thoughts and the possibilities in life! I think this is what art can do: you can make people THINK about things in ways they wouldn’t have before by what you write in a poem!

    What do YOU think?

    With Love,
    Your Auntie Mary
    PS: Dazey whispered to me just now, “Did Brit write that? It’s VERY, VERY –WOOF!!!” 🙂

    I am blown away by such deep thinking for a 9 year old. Keep up the good work. See you soon.

    Love you,

    Brit,
    Your Mom shared your poem with me – and boy am I glad she did! I love poetry, Brit… I sometimes write it, and often read poems to keep my heart and mind working together.
    There were so many lines I loved in yours… I love the line about the two eagles, “…gripping each other so hard that before they descend and hit the ground they turn into dust.” There are so many layers of meaning one can draw from this line, Brit. I also love, “Are all the stars just a puzzle or are they illusions that move and move as you play the game, the game of life?” The stars have so much to share, don’t they? Thinking of them as a puzzle, or an illusion, opens up so many areas to explore…. definitely has me thinking. Super job, Brit – keep your heart open — there is much for you to share with us as you learn and grow. Bravo!

    Brit,

    I can honestly say that these are some of the most beautiful words I have read in years.

    I may need you for lyrics.

    So proud of you.

    love,

    Hi Brit,
    Thanks for sharing that stunning work. I hope that you keep writing poetry as you progress through your life. Most people don’t have that kind of gift with words, and we rely instead on people like you for beautiful poems.

    Really fantastic imagery. My favorite line: “Or does it hold the keys to the past as you turn the engine?”
