Stones

#FromOneLine 216

I tore the sky apart
To capture the stars
In my calloused palms
They lost their shimmer
Lay in silence
Without a glimmer
No joy, no shine, no sparks
Far away from home
In a place so forlorn,
Against their will
Without a wish
Even stars became stones

A spoonful of sky

The challenge was to write a poem on “desserts”.

On paper clouds
Cotton candy winds
Dreams dance
On wishful wings
Of caramel sunsets
Melting sherbets
Berrylicious stains
On azure vistas
Silken summons
From opal skies
With fluid colors
In bone china plates
A painted sunrise
