The Farther Star

Copyright 2013 Sandra R. Davidson

It is simple to be a bright star in a dark sky.

The rarer success is to be a bright star in a blue sky, able to withstand the nearer sun and still reach a beholder, should there be any who will lift their attention from the paths at their feet and the surround of distraction.

There then a reward to lay lightly to a touch and reveal your truth: Resourcefulness is the seed set upon the wind, freedom is offering up everything you are to the risks, and tenacity is finding purchase wherever you next set to ground.

  1. So few words took me on a journey of thought. You are such a talent. I seriously wanna be like you someday.

    So few words carried me inward and made think about something outside of myself. Thank you.

    • You’re generous and I’ll soak all that in because I’m really trying to remember writing is my calling. I’ve known this since age four and still I need visceral responses like yours to keep the self-doubt from devouring my creative energy.

      I see you’ve made a couple of posts. I’ve got to get ’round to them after I find these two books I’m supposed to have reviewed already for poetry month. Ack. I’m getting senile so soon. ; )

What say you?
