My Time In Space

My Time In Space prose poem

Uploaded by Don Greywolf Ford

I climbed so very high
I’m sure I finally touched the sky
Finding an opening there
I had to clamber through

Now stars are my companions
No longer am I alone
The breadth and depth of stardust
I’ve left for other worlds

They say when you get high up there
You haven’t any friends
But it simply isn’t true
I’m surrounded by it all

A moon for a sister –
And there is brother star
I watch a galaxy spinning round
My Friends are bountiful

At every turn and on every hand
I’m never alone you see
And though they are not flesh and blood
I have them for all eternity

I am a storyteller from the word go. Some of it's real and some of it's imagined. My goal is to entertain, maybe turn a few smiles right side up. An artist from my youth, I write and paint in different colors. For the past four years I have entertained the “older kids” with my storytelling and poetry at retirement homes all around my area. I'm well published across the U.S., and have work in Portugal and Cyprus with connections in 62 other countries. I'm recognized as a Native American Storyteller and Poet Laureate of my town. FAVORITE QUOTE by me: "When writers try to fly their works, some of them fall down. But they must always flap their wings - to get off of the ground."
