NaPoWriMo Day 2 ~ Pure Dazzle

Today’s prompt at the NaPoWriMo site is to write a poem inspired by the stars.

Night sky filled with millions of nuclear explosions
Far from fear inducing mushroom clouds in the sky, but
Dazzling points of light, the inspiration of bards and lovers
Dippers big and small gently tilting out into space
Filling the darkness with cosmic fairy dust

Magical beings ride across the milky way each night
Gods, goddesses, centaurs, bears, ravens, and dragons galore
The stuff of amazing tales and legends for young and old alike
Taking the imagination to places unimaginable
Places where fantastical dreams become reality, soaring on gossamer wings

And if all of that isn’t enough to capture the attention
All one needs to do to understand the impact of the starry skies
Is lie down on an old blanket in a grassy meadow and look up
Magical tales and creatures aside, the beauty of the twinkling lights
Causes the mind to take pause and understand the vastness which we call home
