The Story Of The Starfish

Her worst nightmare came true
as She found Herself violently
tossed upon an alien shore

of gritty sand and burning sun.
Hurt, feebly the Starfish whimpered, 
“Help, help, someone please help me.”
Yet time cruelly ticked on
as piercing sand and blistering sun
blasted death

upon the dying Starfish.
Consciousness faded as Her tender body
 convulsed with all consuming pain when
suddenly something appeared She’d 
never before seen, something
huge with appendages sort of like Hers.
Cringing, fearing the absolute worst 
She felt herself lifted
oh so tenderly and placed upon
a pretty bed of soft and orange.
Carried a very long distance while
cradled in a shadowed sheltered dome
upon the bed of soft and orange,

she felt Herself carefully placed upon her Home
where next came soft wet drops descending from above.
Slowly ever so slowly She felt Herself
 submerge sinking to the ground below.
She was HOME.
Gratitude swelled within Her Breast
for the One who had saved her Breath.
“Bless you, dear unknown Friend of mine,
and thank you with all I Am.
May you be Blessed for your kindness shown
and know somehow I will never forget
how you saved my Life this day.”

      2. I don’t think you read Vietnam Wife. I’ve closed comments and transferred them elsewhere out of respect for my husband. Yes this is MY STORY. All hell ensued when he read my story BUT in the shake up, Truth was seen by he, and in so doing, huge change has come forth. I’m discovering his auditory brain is mush but his reading brain is brilliant. HE GOT WHAT I’VE BEEN TRYING TO GET HIM TO SEE FOR YEARS from ONE WRITTEN post. HUGE success story! Just be prepared for that post is very emotional. ❤

    1. Ya never know what I will produce. I even don’t know. This post actually was inspired by something someone I know said. As I was photographing this flower I saw a Starfish and then a story began to emerge. How cool is that? LOL ❤


    2. YES!!! Mary, do it! You will not regret it. I am so honored I am inspiring you. Thank YOU for telling me. You really have put a smile on my face!!! (((HUGS))) ❤ ❤ ❤


  2. My dear Amy,
    So many wonderful posts here today.
    The Vietnam Wife was especially, inwardly explosive.
    However, you are the Starfish.
    You have been placed within petals
    To drink of dew
    To live and be grateful
    So that the many few may
    Understand the beauty and
    Good that
    A possibility within man.

    1. My Dearest Resa, you have no idea how many times I have read your comment and am again and again stunned just stunned by your words. I struggle to convey to you the depth to which your words went within me, and the message is so profound I tremble deep inside. Tears sting my eyes to even think someone thinks this highly of me. How just how can I ever thank you for the utmost highest encouragement I have ever received? The hardships, the struggles, the pain, the tears, the life lessons, all behind the scenes in order to write from my Heart what you read here. Bless you with all I am. Bless you, Resa. I am eternally grateful to you. God I pray you know how much you moved me. How how can I ever thank you enough????????? ❤ ❤ ❤
