Poetry Month-If I Could Touch The Stars by S A Slack



If I Could Touch the Stars by S A Slack


If I could touch the stars,

I would take a bite from the Milky Way,

And wash it down with water from the Big Dipper.

If I could touch the stars,

I would wear Orion’s Belt around my waist,

And ride on Sagittarius as he galloped the night sky.

If I could touch the stars,

I would dodge the stinging barb of Scorpio’s tail,

And steer clear of the snapping, pinching claws of Cancer.

If I could touch the stars,

I would swim the night seas with Pisces,

And gather wool for sweaters from the great ram, Aries.

If I could touch the stars,

I would tame Leo, fierce king of beasts,

And wave my red scarf in front of Taurus’ horns.

I could touch the stars if,

I had daddy lift me on his strong shoulders,

One last summer before college on beautiful Tybee Island is supposed to help Sienna forget. But how can she?

Even when she meets the mysterious Austin Dobbs, the guy with the intense blue eyes, athlete’s body, and weakness for pralines who scooped her out of trouble when she blacked out on River Street.

When she’s… Continue reading

More Stormy to Come!


To all of you that have been asking for the next Stormy Winters Mystery, I want you to know that I haven’t given up on it. I have planned out several more books in the series. In fact, Stormy has been putting pressure on me to tell of her adventure on Oahu and the pineapple fields for some time now.

I’ve not finished it yet due to two main things: I’m working hard on finishing my fantasy trio “Unicorns and Orchids” featuring Vyolet and Jontur. And two, the amount of increased care my elderly parents have needed with their medical problems. Stormy is a little put out by Vyolet taking center stage at the moment, but will try to wait her turn.

Peanut Butter Thoughts

Last night, being very tired, I put down the book I was reading, turned out my bedside lamp, snuggled under the covers beside my already fast-asleep husband, and closed my eyes, hoping for a blissful nights sleep.

No such luck!

Thoughts of the rather traumatic afternoon replayed in my mind, one after another, almost as if someone had put in a DVD, then sped it up. Images flew through my head, ones of past, present, and future.  My mind would travel down one path only to take off on another.  It was never ending, not to mention unsettling.  I tried to divert my brain with deep and steady breathing, readjusting my pillow, turning on my side, and looking across the room at the clock which I’d already turned toward the wall  (I’m a terrible clock watcher.)  Nothing helped to stem the flow,… Continue reading
