Star Gazer--By Keith O. J. Hunt--Canada

Star Gazer

When she smiled at him ----
   the world could wait,
   with its myriad of contradictions
   and infinite postures to feigned joy;
   there could be no deceit in her light....
That gorgeous assurance that he was as alive
   as the vast heartbeat of the cosmos;
   what a whetted pulse to quicken and burst
   upon the shoulders of stars,
   and saddle comets to flame....
   ride the rays of the sun....
As a child again under the spell of ice cream,
   shiny-toy and heroic dream;
   the world could wait,
   (when she smiled at him)

Keith O. J. Hunt is a Classic-Romantic poet who generally prefers the older styles which he finds the greatest way to express his thoughts. He loves people, nature, spirituality and all things beautiful. Keith lives in Ottawa, Canada and has been writing poetry for 15 yrs.
