Among the Stars (Yeah Write!)

Optimism swirls in the cosmos;

a solar commixture of hydrogen, helium and magic,

weaving , spinning against the inky background,

trailing stardust in its wake.

This is where I always look to find you, hidden amid reality and a reason to believe.




I missed posting for the BRAND SPANKING NEW


hosted by my friend Christine…

so I’m adding my answer to that prompt here in the Moonshine Grid instead.

42 words (no more, no less)

his week it’s based on this thought:

What’s so amazing that keeps us stargazing?

  2. Followed your link from the comments over at the yeah write gargleblaster grid. I hope you do link this up to the moonshine grid on Friday so more people can read your take on the prompt. It was such a beautiful post.

  4. Oh, how magical is this?!?!?! I got totally caught up in your imagery, the “trailing stardust in its wake.” I’m glad you told me that you didn’t make the linkup either so I could visit! Very preoccupied this week, but not too much to head over here for the fun!!! Have a great weekend! XO

  8. Dang, Kir, you find such fantastic phrases! I love the magic, and “hidden amid reality and a reason to believe.” That’s the kind of thing I wish I’d written. I’m so sorry you missed the link-up – I had no idea it would fill up so quickly! Please post this to the moonshine grid, and come by next week to get the next gargleblaster prompt. Oh, and thanks for the shout-out above – I am so ridiculously excited to be here!

  11. Hey… why didn’t I think of this!!! I missed Gargleblaster dedline too… I thought I’d get a notice, but missed it. I had written a story and then saw I was too late.

    I like your blaster, Kirsten.
