Stringing Constellations

Five ‘til eleven
The day slipped by,
Passing thru a broken
Sieve, the sun stole
Away into the dimming
Sky, reeling in the hours
Hooked to the strongest
Line, leaving behind
A vacuum as the night
Draws close desolating,
With too much to do
Nothing is done, only
Vowed. Words swirling
In the defunct stagnation,
Of promises to resurrect
Days, like stars in the dark
Sky, glowing boldly to be
Strung end on end to make
Wonderful weeks yoking
Meritorious months hung
Alongside Orion and Draco
To be named after sensations
Of simple pertinence, Sweet
Osculation, Placid Locution,
Purlieus or Reverie, to transcend
Past midnight through many
Suns and moons ’til time
To be goin’ home.

  3. This post is well liked by me as I come to think about my childhood & what I did for stringing things up in my room as to the star constellations in the sky. It really made me think about how well god has put his wondrous hands on everything he has made for us as well as creating us too. I have another blog as well which is at if interested in seeing what I have put on there. It is called Live Healthy & is all about taking care of your body & making sure you don’t let it go to waste before the age of 50. It is real work to recorrect anything your body is losing as the more you age, the more you need to add back to your body for nutrition which is hard to believe also but is true. Thanks & have a great day!
