Stars don’t shine
Like how you’ve been told
They’re mere bulbs
Star-shaped, lit up
What a waste!
Poor sun out-does them every morning
They appear the moment
He retires for the day
At the local bar every night
We shoot them down, random
Fools make a wish
They say it’s lucky omen
That’s not all!
They flaunt on the red carpet
In Armani, Gucci
Brands need Brands
To make fumbling speeches
Hold on –
Walks in the dude
Hear the applause
Watch him talk
And Meryl smiles…
I’m such a waste!

well written and awesome photo
Do you miss the glamour?
I miss film making.
Beautiful photo and love your poem !
Thank god you didn’t say macfarlane was funny… Awful! Soo long and so boring… Daniel was my high light.
and Affleck. Hm!
Daniel can have my left foot, anytime 🙂
I’m guessing this is about the oscars? I ignore the whole thing entirely. Great picture.
Hey Richard. Good to see you.
Beautiful photo– bordering on the abstract. And funny poem– but pooh on the Oscar’s this year.
Thank you Ellen. True, Oscars dint live up to our expectations. Daniel was the only highlight and he deserved it. A beautiful acting career of a highly focussed and talented actor. I love his movies, all of them hence this poem. Good to see you, Ellen. Warm Regards
An Oscar is in your future. I feel it in my bones. Then again, what do my bones know? 😉
If you feel it in your finger bones, I’m sure. They’ve been freshly pressed twice this year, no wonder 🙂
Why, yes, it IS in my finger bones. So I guess you’re getting an Oscar… (Thank you. 🙂 )
It might so happen, I’ll have to go in your place to fetch Best Original Screenplay award. and where will you be? On the road campaigning – “Quit burgers, You fools, I missed Kodak theater for you”
You’ve got that right! About my crusade against the 10,000 calorie burger, that is. About the Best Original Screenplay part? Not so much. But I like your delusions. 🙂
I’ve faith in your fingers 🙂
Love your poem – what a great rhythm. Fantastic photograph too.
I’ll see you tomorrow dude! 🙂
Daniel Day Lewis is one actor I would trust in any role. One of the best.
Absolutely. He’s one of the finest method actor of our times.
Lovely! Beautiful photo as well
Nice blog! And thank you for reading and rating mine!
Listening to some Radiohead while I read this – the perfect accompaniment.
Anita, I’m making a bad habit of your compliments! This is serious.
Beautifully written and gorgeous picture!
Thank you Judy,
Looking forward to Sunday bloom
No surprise at the Oscars and at your blog. You’ve written another great, funny, whimsical and a little sad poem. Loved it!
Quite beautiful. Thanks for coming by and the like of my post “Planted in the Snow on top of the Roof”.
I’m glad you came by. Thank you!
