Starlight Tears


Starlight Tears

Some legends can be borne from one generation to another,
And myths can sail unscathed through the centuries,
Tales of Olde bound within scrolls can live on forever,
Yet some go unheard due to distant and troubled memories,‘

When the star fell, no less startled ‘twas the dragon,
For it ‘twas indeed an unexpected arrival from above,
Life before the fallen had been filled with strife and burden,
And yet now he had been gifted with this shining dove,

For years, he had looked above his darkened recess,
Set deep in the blackened edges of the realm,
Away from the Kingdoms of man and their desire for success,
Choosing to live alone and be King of his own helm,

With so few of his own kind abound within his time of then,
Took to whispering did he to the glimmerings high in the ethereal,
Praying that another would soon appear like afore again,
And he would not end his days listlessly within the surreal,

One star, a glittering teardrop of light, caught his eye,
From many distanced moons afore,
And he did so spake every night that passed him by,
With this truest of beauty of the nightly encore,

Ancient yet learned journeys were shared into the unknown,
Imaginations alighted and realisations soon came dawning,
But alas, the tear was within an eternity of her own,
Unable to break free of the overbearing yawning,

Time did so pass between this unlikeliest of pairings,
But the dragon was indeed patient, for it was in his nature,
So that so, when the starlight tear unshackled her bearings,
Was she thus able to finally answer his on-going prayers,

Legend it may not be, myth in only the eyes of unbelievers,
Yet a tale it shall now become, and the journey shall again begin,
For the story is still but young but will fill the chambers,
Of those believing in the starlight tears of the dragon’.

      1. Thank you Heather for the vote of confidence, as l have just replied to Kat above, l think if anything, it may well be a lack of confidence that prevents this from happening – but l will look into it.

        Since joining WordPress l have been bowled over by the compliments and trust me when l say, from a man who becomes blushed and confused with compliments – l genuinely appreciate them all 🙂

    1. In truth, it would not be the first time l have heard this phrase Kat. In answer, no l never have, l never really thought my verse was worthy.

      Not being humble or modest, but l am the strange kin, that is never fully happy with the finished product. The poetry is ok, and many a time l am happy with it. A lot of people can relate to it, even with abstract pieces such as this.

      Heather recently asked if l had thought of voicing my poetry, again, not the first time someone had made mention to it, and again something l had toed and froed over.

      I will give it thought.

      Meanwhile my thanks for the compliment and the comments here today.
