How to Catch a Star

Search for a star with an eye of ENTHUSIASM.
Let its wonder unfold and hear its stories untold.

Prepare a long wooden stick of HOPE.
For you know that the star is in a place so high and far.

Lift your stick up with your hands powered by your STRENGTH OF HEART.
For your body alone is weak without the longing of a heart that seeks.

Capture the star inside the net of DETERMINATION.
For you may fail a thousand times, but the one who succeeds is the one who tries.

Put it in the jar of HAPPINESS to remind you of your success.
For if the clouds appear in the deep dark night, your stars in a jar will be your light.

Do it again but don’t compare your jar with another’s.
Your star might be smaller or it might be larger.
But comparing will put a black hole inside.
For it makes one proud or insecure, it’ll dim your star for sure.

Seal your jar with LOVE and then share it with your friends.
For victory is sweet with friends that greet.
And the light that is shared is the brightest indeed!

  1. This is SO Marvelous!! It should be a poster I could hang on my wall–I LOVE it!! Would it be alright for me to print it off, with Full Credit to you as author/artist, I wonder?


  2. I meant to tell you that your art style reminds me of a favorite California artist of mine–Flavia Weedn–are you familiar with her? I think you’d love her!


  3. Hi lovey! I’ve given you the Soul-Song Award for this poem, which you know I love. Visit my blog for more info!
