for a moment...he lets mind and spirit slip through the cold bars, leaving the asphalt jungle behind...and there awaits... Outer Connections


                                                                 (*

 

The stars are for me...

they care enough to

always show me where they are

 

at times...

they provide guidance*

 

At night...we talk and

they never interrupt me as

I give my point of view

 

they listen and

speak back...in silence*

 

The stars are for me

because...

the stars are of me

...completely, entirely

dust

and

heat

dust and heat. I like the ending

It's as if the universe were one incredible organism, which it is -
and we are all "star stuff" which we are. But I waste so many words in saying so dryly what you say so poetically.

The immensity of the heavens are always worth considering but I feel sad about the limitations of your situation but you have a great imagination to overcome it and surely it will guide you to a great life in the future.

Beautiful. Insightful. May you one day see the stars from freedoms' view. Sincerely, Vicky

Wonderful write Asa. I love the line that says "they never interrupt me as I give my point of view".
This is very thought provoking.

The imagery is wonderful. The picture is such a compliment to your words. The mark of a good poet is for the reader to see what the writer sees, and hear what the writer hears. You have accomplished just that.

A beautiful poem Asa. Reach out to the one who gave you life and seek his will. Keep writing Asa, as you have a true talent. May God bless you every day of your life.

Reviewed by MaryGrace Patterson 9/2/2010
This poem is profound and has so much depth! It's wonderful that Asa can find beauty and comfort in something which is seen on a nightly basis and taken for granted by many. It's special if one looks beyond the outer surface and can see the infinite beauty of the cosmos .Prison life can be hard and cruel at times. I'm glad he has the depth and perception to look beyond and let his soul touch the endless magnatude of heavenly spheres. Please keep sharing his poems with us. I believe they can make a difference in someones life....M

Please tell Asa thank you for this posting. The first stanza is fantastic and is my favorite of a wonderful poem. Patrick

Joyce, Asa has discovered that the stars are the ears of Heaven. Communicating with God. Men may turn a deaf ear to our pleas, but the stars never abandon our needs for ethereal wisdom. Twinkling in response. Asa's work shows wisdom has overtaken whatever errors he made in the past. My wishes for peace, joy and love to both of you. Jon Michael

This poem takes me back to my birthplace. The stars, the moon, and God's elements brought peace to my soul as I spoke to them in the quiet of the evening.

Reviewed by David Maclellan 8/25/2010
The simplicity of your words betray the complexity of emotions that are wrought by confinement. I can relate to the sense of escape that is enjoyed by marvelling at the night sky that belongs to you no less that anyone else outside the wall. A talented write Asa, would love to read more.
Stay strong brother,

Beautifully written Asa. The Lord knows what comforts we each enjoy whether it be stars or clouds, or mountains, or flowing waters. God's creation can bring such peace to our lives if we only let it.
God Bless!

Sometimes we have to be still to communicate with He who listens completely, caringly, and without judgment. Lotís of us have been in a time and place when it seemed as though there was no one to listen... thatís when we must realize, a line is always open to the One you can always connect with; the One whose ears are all about us, even in the stars! Very well written, I love it!!

Soul and vision are strong in this writing, beginning to end. Stars as companions, this is a lovely spiritual connection. Your expressions are invigorating and cause great thought in a pleasant way; this has good complexity, and good simplicity. It is a warming feel, and is visually stunning. Great writing skills ... I am so jealous....
Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper 8/23/2010
All of us have to reach out and grab hold of "something" to hold onto. For Asa, it is the stars in the heaven as they bring peace to his thoughts. Nice job!
