My Cart 


Larry Schug


We are shining stars,
each a light unto ourselves,
yet bound together
by an invisible thread.
We revolve around each other,
form shifting patterns of brilliance,
power, grace and love
in our luminous dance.
We challenge the night
that surrounds us all,
but cannot dampen
the light we radiate
as we work, laugh and dance

I enjoyed this lovely, concise poem, which speaks of how each of us "shines"--how each person is special. Janice Canerdy

A beautiful poem about our luminous life where the thread of every word counts.

Right on! General but specific. This speaks loudly in few words.
