         i. stardust scatters with the
direction of my pupils –
maybe secretly i am an
astrology teacher, waiting
for a sign to wink
happily at me.

         ii. excuse the rambling
nature of forgotten question
marks, but tell me:
would you like to be the
object of handwritten clichés
would you like to whisper
secrets in my palm
and would you
like to be the possibility

         iii. air brushes against my
skin like the torn petals
of a flower still standing.
[ hold your head up high, honey,
and tell tomorrow to wait just
a while,

         iv. so you can figure out
the difference between
patience and having all the
time in the world. ]

         v. stardust glitters from the
creases of my hands.
perhaps i am not the teacher
but the pupil,
relearning how brilliant
stars can shine.

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-01-08
relearning by ~jikivigoig is beautifully broken into separate parts, each coming together to make a well-written and powerful whole, as the suggester says. ( Suggested by DorianHarper and Featured by Nichrysalis )

someone out there said SOME stars are hundreds to billions of years dead ... but I prefer to think as long as they shine ... aesthetically they are alive

from the dimmest to the brightest ... each and every star represents a tiny bit of soul ... and sometimes more
