Melting Moons & Threading Stars

They paint magenta over black skies or pale blue over white clouds. Some painters dab their brushes in magenta skies others in clouds.

Melting Moons & Threading Stars is a poem written by Pasithea Chan and shared with The Ugly Writers under the theme Treasures That We Keep for the month of May.

 

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.
