This was the first rhyme my mother taught me as a young child. It intrigued me and became part of our family rituals/traditions. This rhyme began my love affair and attraction to the amazement of the stars, the Moon, the heavens, and the universe. Write about this child’s rhyme:

What did it mean to you as a child?

What does it mean to you now?

Please write and share by including you website, FaceBook, Tumblr etc. in the comments section for others to read. Don’t have one of these, post your response in the comment box to share your writing.

I am looking for some amazing things from my Writing Rebels!

  1. Star light, star bright

    Recall of my early years
    Limited at best…
    Mental images,
    Snapshots in
    Undefined time

    Once fell out a window
    No memory at all…
    But a glimpse out
    The window in the
    Door of a streetcar
    Of the river far below…
    Still a vivid image

    Selective memory
    My defense…no worse
    As I get older (thank goodness)
    Did I recite the lines of a
    Well-know childhood verse?
    Of course…maybe the first
    I ever learned…could be
    Why I now search the sky
    Looking into the infinity
    That true believers deny

  2. Thanks Shelly — The Texas sky at night is ever changing and I always find something I’ve never seen before. My “dark walks” as I call them are something I cannot miss every night. The same for my morning walk … also in the dark before dawn … a whole new view at that time of day!

    • I agree … the morning dark is so different … also comforting, but its feel completely all its own. I also look at the evening dark as a way to end the day put what didn’t work in the past, what did in the future. In the morning, I look at the future and forget the past. A new beginning . . .

      I look forward to the new prompt! I really like trying to form the writing then see if I have photo to match it. Even though I’m a novice, I’m enjoying it Annie!

    • Annie … I just loved it! From singing Twinkle Twinkle to falling stars being your guides. I too am awed by the night sky and seek solace from it. It is there that I find my spiritual strength when I most need it! May you always find the comfort there . . .
