Stars from Haleakala

Having watched the sun sink into the sea
amidst the valley of clouds
we waited there, my family and I
to view the starlit Hawaiian sky

On top of Haleakala the stars lit one by one
amidst a sea of blackened sky
as a chill descended upon the mountaintop
the Heavens shone bright

The sight was truly glorious from 10,000 feet
amidst the small cluster of visitors
who dared to brave the cold to see
God’s handiwork from on high


I was inspired by Viv Blake’s star poem to write another for dVerse’s Poetics prompt.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  2. Oh Linda! Two wonderful poems! and I so enjoy you were inspired by another’s poems that was linked. This is what is wonderful about poetry – how we share and inspire each other. I think those stars must have been so inspiring to see them as you did. Thank you.
