Today’s prompt: sapphire stardust

Dancing Stardust

The morning sky caresses my eyes 

Shades of daylight colours, amplified 

A cosmos of infinite sapphire stardust  

Royal aqua beams, an inviting wanderlust 


I’m illuminated on this day, to actually try 

Gather up all my blues, that have yet to cry 

Pack them in first, don’t waste a chance 

There is time left, to travel this vast expanse 

My Itmims* craft is waiting, and ready to fly 

And traverse through space’s cobalt sky 

These alien eyes, sense my universe wants to have a dance 

And embrace my star’s everlasting existence 

*Itmims; Ivor’s Time Machine In Micro Space

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  1. I feel like I should be expanding out to the Universe connecting with my Inner Universe within my soul I would love to go physically or in my imagination. Life here is so tawdry yet our Planet still shines Mother Earth is amazing. The song and lyrics well chosen..

    1. I hope my imaginations, are not the beginning of me flying off into micro-space, where I will end up being a minuscule of my real self, and heading to a “point” of no-return … Then we’ll need “Doctor Who” to extract me out of the shrinking vortex machine… 😎😏😯

  2. All of the colours of the world help us when the emotional-blues become too-blue. 🙂
    And it’s wonderful when we have those ways of “escape” to find joy, peace, comfort, lightness, etc. 🙂
    Love the thoughts of stardust, wonderlust, and flying!
    HUGS!!! 🙂
    PS…always enjoy hearing about your Itimims adventures!!!

    1. Hi Carolyn, a little bit of a celebration poem, as lockdown retrictions, will start to be gradually eased as of tomorrow… still a long way to go, but it’s a step in the right direction.. Yeah… 😊🌏❤🌞

  3. Ivor, I was wondering what “Itmims” was! So, you have a time machine and didn’t share!? Lol.😉😄 I’m sure it is a beautiful craft as beautiful as this poem, my friend. Love the imagery. It really takes you on an adventure. 👏🏼🚀✨

      1. You’re very welcome, Ivor. I read your poems and I think it’s amazing how you were able to release your creativity and emotions while in isolation. Plus, the “Itmims” seems like it has taken you to some very awesome places. 😊
