This poem invites us to believe wishes can come true. Also, that the night is beautiful and hopeful and not just scary.

Congratulations on placing in the contest.

Keep writing

stars and wishes...

visual words that stir the
imagination...

    The rule is four consecutive alphabet letters they have he fifth line begins with a nonconsecutive letter. Took me by surprise the first time I encountered it

Very nicely done! I enjoyed your poem. There is nothing like the tranquility of the night sky, especially out in the the middle of nowhere. Best of luck in the contest.

Take care,
Russell

Hi mybrooks - how true are your words - the stars do inspire. You mention their alighnment - Jupiter and Venus did just that in 2016, it was amazing. This is a perfect ABC and I wish you well in the contest. Happy New Year to you and yours - warm regards, Dorothy

MV, a very good entry for the ABC poetry contest.
The stars do light up the night sky and create such
beauty for us to look at. I wish I went out more at
night and noticed them. If you live where there's not
a lot of city lights you sure notice them more.

    I agree. Summers on my grandmother's farm we discovered many more stars then we did back at home. Thank you for your kind and encouraging words.

Happy New Year, Maureen. You are off to a good start, I see with this ABC entry. I liked these two lines the most:

"Unleash wishes if you dare to
Visit and wish upon them."

Good luck in the contest. Blessings, Bob

    Thanks for the positive words and wishes. I'm finding when I allow my work to "get cold" and edit again, it seems to be improving. I did consider your advice when editing for similar syllables per line. It has proven excellent advice.

    My very best wishes and hopes for you, Mary, and your family this new year!
