Every night
I look up and
See the Same
Stars that we named as children.

You constantly
Giggling wildly
Never letting me
Into the turmoil inside of your head.

A brilliant
Glimmer of
Radiance and
I’m too close to the epicenter.

I can’t catch
You as your
Parachute flutters
Like ribbons and you with the knife in hand.

I have known the solitude of the sun

Shining in a sky filled with

Stars, birds, and multitudes that

Never do they feel for it.

Each trails across the azure

Heedless of his plight

Because he flares on, never complaining

Even when, clouds try to hide his beauty.

I have seen stars on the earth

Looked on for shining too brightly

In a society that seeks to blot them out

To extinguish them because they too cannot shine.

Celestial Minds

Ode to My Grandmother’s Love Letters

 There are no stars tonight

But those of memory

 They twinkle brightly

Against the canvas of my mind.

 Yet the others flicker and extinguish

The more I try to focus on them.

 The say it’s a disease

A black hole in my consciousness.

 Will all my orbs be consumed?

Will I be left pitch black…empty?

“Stars Hide Your Fires”

Each star burns

Hot and Bright

From somewhere out

In space.

They look down on

Millions of worlds.

Their warmth wrapping

Like a quilt around.

Each is a soothing

Song to these

Eternally wandering

Disobedient Children.

Each respects the distance

Not wanting to crowd

But  give the space

To allow individuality.

Suddenly one of these endlessly

Singing Sirens’ temper flares

Causing a cosmic cataclysm

Charring all the little ones.

Top Actors/Actresses for Me

with one comment

Sometimes people ask me who I think my favorite actors and actresses are…to which I reply that I have favorite old and younger male and female of both. Honestly, I go back and forth between several. However, these are the ones that I’m am intrigued by at this point.

Actors

Anthony Hopkins is my pick for my older actor. I think its because he so charming and diverse…and he does have that English flair to boot. He has also been in many things from The Silence of the Lambs to The Wolfman which is hitting theaters today even as I type this. I think he is a phenomenal actor with many credits to his name. He embodies the characters he plays.

Edward Norton is probably my favorite younger actor. I think it’s mainly because of his range. He has been a skinhead in the movie American History X, a person with some severe mental issues and an overall badass in Fight Club, and been beloved Marvel character Bruce Banner in The Incredible Hulk. Overall, he is one of a kind….However, I will say that a close second was Robert Downey Jr.

Actresses

 

Meryl Streep is probably my favorite actress out there right now simply because she can play almost any character to a tee. She has been Julia Childs, the “devil”, and an immortal corpse in the scope of her career. And at the age of 61, she still competes with all the younger girls of Hollywood for parts. She is a clever actress with many qualities that others out there wish they had. She is amazing in every sense of the word.

Lastly, Cate Blanchett is my favorite younger actress because she is ethereal and lovely. She like Streep is able to play roles from an elven queen to a teacher who sleeps with one of her students. She plays each part with incredible vivacity. She has such range and abilities that it’s obvious why she has been nominated for vast numbers of awards for her acting prowess.  Personally, I just find that her voice is beautiful and enthralling (I wish she would narrate more or voice over books)…but anyway, I think she has earned her place in the golden ways of Hollywood.

So, there you have it…that’s my top four and some of the reasons why…if you want to know more, feel free to ask.
