The #Conspiracy of Sky #dversepoets OLN

Nobody understands
the constellations of my thoughts

and nobody should –

as I lay flat on my bed
all four corners
creeping in

spinning round
above the ground

the conspiracy of sky
is that it used to
shape-shift

as old stars
slinked
into new
holes
snatching
souls

This is an older poem, but I don’t believe I ever shared it for dVerse Open Link Night, and because I just started a YouTube channel, I wanted to share the video as well! Let me know what you think and for more of my poetry videos #Subscribe!

    1. Thanks, Linda! It’s been fun learning how to make the videos. Also, looking over my older work and polishing has allowed me to see how my writing has progressed, and the dVerse community has certainly helped elevate it!πŸ’

  1. Wowsers Tricia – I love your finish:

    as old stars
    slinked
    into new
    holes
    snatching
    souls”

    Bravo!

  2. β€œthe constellations of my thoughts” – that is insanely superb!! I just LOVE that line. This whole piece is so beautifully original and magically done. The ending ties everything together in a clever way too. Really really really well written, dear Tricia πŸ€πŸ€—

      1. Aww you are always welcome, dear friend! A treat to read you 🀍. Ah you do such a good job at it!!! πŸ€—

    1. πŸ˜† I think people can make a good conspiracy theory out of anything and the sky is so mysterious it’s perfect material! I’d read an article before that people thought Saturn was our first sun. They called it the “black sun” but technically I know Saturn isn’t a sun. So many theories on how things shifted around up above!

  3. I’ve always considered the night sky as friendly – this puts a whole new spin on things!

      1. Sounds like it! And it’s a great way to get folks to look at poetry who wouldn’t do it otherwise . . . Everything is so β€œvisual” these days. Well, tbh, Blake in the 18th c. understood that and added his illustrations to his poetry. Double whammy. πŸ˜‚

      2. True! I think poetry does deserve all the glitz and glamour my budding tech skills can muster! Since I don’t pay for the WP Premium I can’t insert my own videos here, but they will allow the YT links, so this is a sneaky way to get my own videos on my page, cheap! πŸ˜†
