Melting Moons & Threading Stars
Thoughts are honeycomb moons
surrounded by passion’s stars.
Together they hang in inspiration’s
skies threaded by hope’s cables.
Minds are painters with ladders
anchored on will’s winds.
They paint magenta over black skies
or pale blue over white clouds.
Some painters dab their brushes
in magenta skies others in clouds.
Others spread the spread honey combs
across these skies and clouds.
Many chase the brightest stars
until their moons melt away.
Very few capture the honeycombs
before they fade using starry threads.
I’ve seen some walk their ladders
across magenta skies with tries.
While others get blown like posters
by blue clouds blocking the moon.
It takes courage to put up a ladder;
determination to hold a ladder;
trust to chase the moon,
and faith to thread stars.
