Looking at the stars

Oscar we won’t let you down
As we trail our lives
Through grimy, dusty streets
All our past mistakes and sins
Crushed beneath our feet
Knocking on doors of riches
That all the world debars
We’ll be looking at the stars

Oscar we will hold up high
Your aspirations and your words
Find solace in such poetry
As angels yet may fall to hear
And as the cold is drawing near
Riding in the devil’s car
We’ll be looking at the stars

I'm drawn to blogging as a way to share ideas and consider what makes us who we are. Whether it's in our working life or our creativity, expression is a means to connect.

  1. Love Oscar Wilde. We also have an Osprey in the neighborhood we named Oscar because of his ability to soar.
