Poetry Contest

May the force be with her
Another one gone --let's give Carrie Fisher a DUP send off; she'll be missed greatly.

One week, no collabs, as many entries as you want, poems, short prose --don't be a hater, though.

Go.

RIP Princess

When I heard the news my heart felt sad,
It was like losing someone close to me,
But the truth is, when people like you are gone,
Itís a big impact on all of us...the entire galaxy.

We let you into our hearts with your stories,
What you portrayed and played brought you fame,
Whether it was in real life or on the screen,
Now the world is just not the same.

You must know what you signified to your fans,
What you meant to a generation of dreamers,
Stargazers in wonder of the constellations,
With your starís glowing demeanor.

Itís heartbreaking that youíre gone so soon,
Like when a starlight goes out sometimes,
But I guess in the scheme of the universe,
We just never know our time.

For what itís worth, may the force be with you,
Your pictures and stories let us escape and get away,
But now itís a sadness we all have to carry, Carrie,
Rest in peace princess in that paradise, far, far away.

I'm sorry, Ma'am, I can't try to do a proper write just now.  Just got the word...

She's gone, God bless you, Debbie.  

She was broken hearted when she lost her Carrie.  

She couldn't bare the weight of the weightlessness without her little girl.

And she couldn't wait..,

Now she's on her way where her princess awaits for her mom at that special place

far, far away...

A Prayer for a Princess

Among the stars
A princess flies
To new adventures
Beyond human sight
We love Princess Leia
Youíll always be
In our hearts
May the force be with you

MOTHER & DAUGHTER

One came from the other
One died before the other
But with hearts tied
To one another
They'll be together
In heaven forever

The snuffed Candles

candles, †lighted, sparkles bright
faded now, flitted into the night
no one knows where
yet they are no longer here

forever young on silver screen
voices, spoken, vibrant energy
holding hands smiling lips
entwined the souls of two

Debbie and Carrie
gone to glory
thank you for the memories
planted with the stars

in the stars
crystal dusts
glittering as ever.


May their Souls rest in Peace.

postcards from when we met

i never knew she was
a respected hollywood script doctor
or that postcards from the edge
was based on a book she wrote
or that she had written all those novels
i knew about the drugs and craziness
but i didn't know debbie reynolds was her mom
and of course she was hot as princess leia
but i liked her best in when harry met sally,
one of my all-time favorite movies
i could picture myself sitting in bed with her
on the phone, meddling in everybody's business
and afterwards lying in each other's arms,
talking about what we'd do if we were them
so RIP carrie
maybe we will someday meet,
but in the meantime,
say hello to you mother
for me

Thanks everyone --since I started this comp just before Debbie Reynolds passed, please feel free to include her in any writes as well,

Sad, sad time...ugh.  Much love and peace to Billie, losing both her mother and grandmother together

Just a Day Apart

I couldnít believe or move when I saw the news,
Like a tidal wave it hit me like water,
Just a day apart, it just breaks our hearts,
To hear youíre gone right after your daughter.

A parent should never outlive their child,
But the heart break just seemed too great,
To bear such pain and carry much strain,
But those are the cards dealt by the hands of fate.

Your beauty, your body of work, itís legendary,
It will stand the test of time for all to see,
Your elegance had such a stunning presence,
Youíve really left an outstanding legacy.

Youíve gone to be with Carrie in the afterlife,
Here youíll remain as one of the icons for evermore,
In away youíve become memorable and immortal,
Rest in peace Debbie, the world is yours.

And to Billie, our prayers and thoughts are with you,
In this difficult time be strong, have faith and resilience,
The world will give you the respect and the admiration,
You have your mother and grandmotherís beauty and brilliance.

Thanks everyone & congrats to Wally for first place, Grace in second and Snug & Taurek--you're both tied for second runner up, but I can only assign to one, so I left it blank to not have to leave one out.

*tips hat to Debbie & Carrie*

Thank you Madame for the honor. This was certainly a new experience for me, but I'm sure many fans have been affected by this. My congratulations to Grace on runner up and to all the other entries for their wonderful sentiments.
