A Found Poem

A Star is Born

In a desert, beautiful night

Laying in a pile of stars looking at a sand filled sky, truly

A star is born bright

*

Bemusement bare, transfixed, a sight

in the burn of the night’s cold wind, I'll be

In a desert, beautiful night

*

Silver streams of the night’s sun white

My eyes twinkle, liberated--I breathe

A star is born bright

*

I lay listless, in the night

Drifting, I dream, seconds like hours -- no reality

In a desert, beautiful night

*

I’m engulfed in acceptance's sight

The end, the beginning, for me

A star is born bright

*

Filled with empty joy tonight

I let go, for me

In a desert, beautiful night

A star is born bright

    This is exceptionally beautiful, Jennifer! I really love the connection you made with the repeating verse, "In a desert, beautiful night". So many empowering and inspirational vibes in here 🥹

    "Thank you for painting this beautiful picture with words. The poem leaves me with a sense of wonder and an appreciation for the quiet moments of existence."

  • Oh no, I'm so sorry you didn't get to enter this into the challenge 🥺 Your Villanelle was so beautifully written and the ending felt so liberating!

  • This was supposed to be submitted into the villanelle challenge. It was gone before 11:58.... kind of depressing since I thought we could enter until 11:59. Anywho, this is a found poem that I felt would be perfect for the villanelle challenege since I wrote "A Star is Born" with a style like villanelles in mind. I thought writing a poem that was a challenge within a challenge would be amazing as well. It was considerably difficult since I had limitations regarding words and rhyme schemes....Was definitely fund and I would do it again for sure!
