Thursday’s Special: Reaching for a Star
He could never understand that shining star glistening so brightly and leading the way.
Everybody wanted to reach for her, and he tried, but failed.
The star smiled at him trying to give him a hand. “Come over, reach me”, she said. The glow was blinding, and so was his desire to be with her. The path was long and never ending. The star decreased her glow to lower the blinding light; he tried, reaching harder, having to close his eyes. The light was overwhelming. “You need to understand me”, said the star. “If you don’t, you’ll never get here”. He gave his best, but the effort seemed futile. The star got angry: “I gave you a hand, I lessened my light, I helped you reach me, and you can’t”.
With his eyes closed he remained in silence. Arms burned from the light too intense he had to count his losses.
My dear blogger friend Colline encouraged me to awaken my writing potential. I hope she will like this piece. Please, check out her inspiring blog that she describes as “a potpourri of my experiences, thoughts, and feelings” to discover her creative writing, interesting images and observations.
