A Tattoo of Stars


My shadow from the door

Of the bar room night

Cold as the pavement

In neon light

Silhouettes of a smoke man

Blows clouds through the dark


And I’m thinking

Of someone else’s wishing


Turns the night to a tattoo of stars

Winking in the softness

Of shadowling palms

Swaying to an old song

With the memories of a juke box

I turn my collar to the cold


Friday night is lingering

Another place is calling

Vodka and karaoke singers

In the heat of Mediterranean summers

All left and gone

The streets sing on their own


And I’m thinking

Of someone else’s wishing


Echoed back my footsteps

And the dogs are barking

Wandering down windy alleys

The sea a glinting full moon on the rise

Drops its silver for the haunting

Of a night of tattooed stars


And I’m thinking

Of someone else’s eyes


Hands delve deep to the warming pockets

But the brace of breathing air

Helps to steady the smile

She’s somewhere in the wind there

I can almost feel her cheek

Pressed against the straying breeze 


Friday night is lingering latent in its heat

I never new how being alone

Could taste so sweet

And somewhere she is sleeping

With her arms around me

And she’s dreaming


She’s dreaming

Of someone else’s wishing

Cherished Pulse--Give It to Someone You Love by Carolyn HowardJohnson

The perfect book for perfect gift-giving. Beautiful (and unsyrupy) sentiments. Beautiful art by Vicki Thomas. And about the same price as you'd pay for a nice greeting card for the..
