Twinkling along
Mountains at night
For everyone to see
Wishing and dreaming
A love that stays as
True and bright.

You Laughed the Stars

You laughed the stars
Into the sky
..
Breeze in your hair
Light in your eyes
As I stood there with you
My hand safe in yours..
Letting the moment sink in
As my heart skipped a beat
And wondered if only
My blessings knew my flaws.

You laughed the stars
Into the sky
How lucky am I
To witness the constellation before me
Your eyes as the sea
The sun like your skin
And even warmer within
Heart of gold, nothing cold
Save the absence of you
A world in which that would not do

You laughed the stars
Into the sky

I stopped and pondered
Why oh why

How do I explain this sight
How can I know why
I felt the hush of heavens heart
Shhhh you cannot begin to try

We can talk and laugh together
Conversation lights up the night
You need not understand how or why
To be enraptured by the sight

You laughed the stars
Into the sky
With mirth so pure
They’d never die
And forged the moon
With just your smile
Such beauty that
They can’t defile
Your breath is like
The thrum of wings
You are the source
Of beauteous things
The ocean’s dance
Your beating heart
Your death would tear
This world apart.

Smiling Moon

You laughed the stars
Into the sky
and the moon smiled down

Did you see it’s dimples
Hollowed out from miniature craters
On the crescent moon?

The sun will shine again
On the different moons
Enlarging the dimples

But not the smile
And the stars will align
Along the night sky

Awaiting the laughter
That drove them into the sky
And made the moon smile down

Laughter (prompt by Cubby)

You laughed the stars
Into the sky,
Then took them away
And made me cry.

You laughed the blue
Into the sea,
Then gave the very sun
To me.

You laughed the love
Into my heart,
And then I knew
We’d never part.

Moon’s Apprentice

You laughed the stars
Into the sky.
On a cloudless night,
They shone like diamonds.
As the moon cast arabesque patterns on
the lake below.
Mirroring your mirth, as the moon’s apprentice,
Calmly twinkling into the night.

I laughed the stars
into the sky
My muscles hurt, I was so blessed,
It was when December was but nigh,
It made a change, as often I was stressed,

Laughter is the medicine for the soul,
I thanked you for showing me the way,
Alas, I did feel more whole.
Every single day in everyway.

How special I was chosen that plight.
The time I laughed the stars into the night.

You laughed the stars

And cried as you watched
the clouds come by

Why did they block
the spectacular view?
Had they nothing

You will the sky
to chase them now
Applaud as it turns
to take a bow

The moon takes on
a subtle glow
And the twinkling stars
complete the show

Laugh again for me

You laughed the stars
Into the sky
I saw them twinkle
Laugh again for me

Come little darling
Watch the night sky
As you sit by my side
I see the wonder

Laughter in your eyes
A twinkle here and there
I saw joy sparkle
Two hearts under the stars

You laughed the stars
Into the sky again
High above, beyond skies
Laugh again for me

Blog: Welcome to Crystal’s Site

You laughed the stars
Into the sky
Twinkling so bright
On that beautiful evening
You brought Daisy Mae to me.
She made it impossible to
Pass her up by using her lungs and
Meowing so loud so I could here her.
She acted so cute and
Made it so hard to pass her up.
The night those twinkling stars
Were so bright as if another
Member of family had been added.
The funny part was a new family
Member had been added.
So I say thank you to those
Stars who were laughed into the
Sky that night because they brought
Me a new addition to my family.
That new addition’s name is Daisy Mae.
I felt so blessed then when she came into
My life and I feel blessed now and each day
As I love her daily.
Her mother was just as beautiful as she is today.
They looked so much alike.
All I can say is
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

You laughed.
The stars
came to be.
Bringing light.
Bringing joy.
No part of the sky was untouched.
An unfathomable glow.
Upon the darkest hour.
Lighting the world.
Reigniting the moon.
A sound so prue.
A sound so true.
Resonated from the deep.
The bellows of you.

Laughing the Stars

You laughed the stars
Into the sky
And, though clouds cover them
In this moment of despair
With those unquestioned whys
In your bright eyes,
I know your heaven’s there
In the bright spheres of life,
So, while we wait
For the atmosphere to clear
Let me just state
For your weary heart to hear;
You laughed the stars
Into the sky.

You hung the moon
To hide the dark

From endless heartbreaks

Your heart is oxygen
Your smile is sunshine
I need your glow again
But you won’t be mine

Oh, even though you’re so far
My heart will always be your den

Wonderful you, finally accepting your excellence as midnight crashed upon us.

Tucked away in the back garden,

We laughed the stars into the sky,
shedding our disguises, loving who we really were.
I hope this won’t be our last time.

Happy God

You laughed the stars into the sky”
Only now, this minute, do I realize
This, and understand joyful truth:
You are God who loves, cherishes, knows me
Your misfit, orphaned child of scarred mystery
You are the Happy God*, my Heavenly Father
Hurray!  Hurrah!
And even if I see no stars, clouds concealing
I will listen for, hear, the twinkling of Your laughter
The merriment You feel when You look upon me
With tender care, covenant grace and peace.

    Into the sky
    Twinkling so bright
    On that beautiful evening
    You brought Daisy Mae to me.
    She made it impossible to
    Pass her up by using her lungs and
    Meowing so loud so I could here her.
    She acted so cute and
    Made it so hard to pass her up.
    The night those twinkling stars
    Were so bright as if another
    Member of family had been added.
    The funny part was a new family
    Member had been added.
    So I say thank you to those
    Stars who were laughed into the
    Sky that night because they brought
    Me a new addition to my family.
    That new addition’s name is Daisy Mae.
    I felt so blessed then when she came into
    My life and I feel blessed now and each day
    As I love her daily.
    Her mother was just as beautiful as she is today.
    They looked so much alike.
    All I can say is
    Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

    1. Sniff, this wasn’t a sad poem but it almost made me cry. I am so happy Daisy Mae became a member of your family. This was beautifully written. 😊💜🐾

  26. You laughed the stars
    Into the sky
    And the gas right out of
    Uranus

    Apologies – it was the first thing that came to mind, and I ran with it. I am willing/ready to suffer the literary consequences. —CC

    1. No apologies necessary! It’s bad for Uranus to always be holding it in. 😉

      1. Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune, are also gas giants.

        1. But not as funny as Uranus. 🙂

  27. You laughed the stars into the sky
    Without a second thought
    Now that hubris is left to lie
    What horrors have you wrought

    Every joke reveals its ignorance
    As a clown betrays his sighs
    The desperate have a happy parlance
    As death encroaches nigh

    1. Love the intellectual/philosophical approach you took with this poem. 🙂

  28. You laughed the stars
Into the sky
    and weaved a beautiful story
    Through your eyes
    And I remained in complete awe
    How the shine of stars
    was a shade high
    For you put them there
    In such momentary trice

    1. Your words always hint at a mystery and a story that has yet to be told. Beautiful. 🙂

      1. Thank you my friend. It is all your creation. I just added few words. 🌸😊

        1. Now, now, you can’t do that. It was 95% your creation. 🙂

  29. And then they exploded and died
    And became black holes
    Because your laughter
    Made them that happy

  30. You laughed.
    The stars came to be.
    Bringing light.
    Bringing joy.
    No part of the sky was untouched.
    An unfathomable glow.
    Upon the darkest hour.
    Lighting the world.
    Reigniting the moon.
    A sound so prue.
    A sound so true.
    Resonated from the deep.
    The bellows of you.

    Thanks. I changed it slightly, sorry. This is pretty neat.:)

    1. No need to apologize! As long as you enjoyed doing the prompt, that’s the most important thing. And you did such a beautiful job with it, so how could anyone complain? 😉

      1. Thank you!

  31. Your giggles stimulated
    the wee birds
    chirping…

    1. What a perfect response from a feline writer! 😸🌸🐾

      1. hey, right, you’re using a cat’s face for your photo as well! 🙂

  32. You laughed the stars
    Into the sky
    And cried the seas
    Into the deep.
    With honest hands
    You crafted life,
    By all intent
    You planned to keep.

    Nice prompt, Cubby! Thank you and here’s a short one 🙂

    1. I can’t think of more perfect lines than the ones you added. Really excellent job! 🙂

  33. You laughed the stars
    Into the sky
    And exhaled the soul
    Out of my body

    1. This is a very intriguing response! 🙂

  34. You laughed the stars
    Into the sky
    It’s a memory
    That puts tears in my eye.

    We talked all day
    And danced all night.
    The perfect date,
    The city lights.

    And then you got in your car
    Never to be seen again.
    Oh, even though you’re so far
    My heart will always be your den.

    1. That is really beautiful and sad. Thank you for your wonderful entry. 🙂

  35. You laughed the stars
    Into the sky
    Burning holes
    The darkness
    Follows
    wherever I go
    But so does your light.

    1. Sorry it took me so long to respond. This was really lovely! 🙂

  36. Night Falls With Joy

    You laughed the stars
    into the sky
    Out there past Mars
    as the crow flies
    Then hummed a tune
    and smiled the moon
    as night took flight

    Thank you for finding my site, as it led me to yours. This was a fun challenge and fit well in the form I’ve chosen to use.

    1. I’m glad you had fun with the challenge! I love your response. Made me smile. 😊

  37. You laughed the stars
    into the sky,
    Funny, now after ten jars
    In the gutter I lie. (This is a nice idea- UnboltMe does a similar kind of thing. And thanks for peeking in…)

    1. What a unique response! Love it. 🙂

  38. You laughed the stars in
    To the sky with great gusto
    A delight for all

    1. Lovely response! I put the title of your blog as bellabirth. Please let me know if you would like this changed. 🙂

  39. You laughed the stars
    into the sky.
    Spinning like a manic pinwheel,
    arms outstretched.

    I must admit,
    it was from that moment on that I truly appreciated you.
    You.
    Wonderful you, finally accepting your excellence as midnight crashed upon us.

    Tucked away in the back garden,
    I needed to be free with you.
    We laughed the stars into the sky,
    shedding our disguises, loving who we really were.
    I hope this won’t be our last time.

    1. What a beautiful response. Love it. 🙂

      1. Thank you so much ! I enjoyed this one a lot !

  40. You laughed the stars
    Into the sky,
    Your smile, a new moon,
    With eyes crinkling bright.
    You made moonbeams
    to bathe lovers in blue light,
    And I too fell in love…
    How could I not fall in love
    With your magic.?

    1. Love the imagery! Beautiful response. 🙂

      1. Thank you! I’m glad you enjoyed it. Was a lovely poetic place to take off from…

  41. What a lovely prompt!

    You laughed the stars
    into the sky
    and cried the Milky Way

    then smiled the sun
    into the blue
    as the break of day.

    1. And what a lovely response! Loved the rhyme at the end. 🙂
