Bright Star, Steadfast Heart

The thing about having your heart broken by a truly beautiful experience is that you’re almost happy for the excuse to mend your shattered heart. Such as it was for me in recently watching ‘Bright Star’ – my heart was indeed broken, but it happened in such spectacular fashion that I’d happily repeat the experience again and again. ‘Bright Star’ was a film I sadly missed seeing at the cinema and so I’ve been impatiently awaiting its release on DVD.

Apart from very likely being the most stunning movie I have ever seen (the colours and contrasts are a-m-a-z-i-n-g), Bright Star reminded me of something important, something I’d almost forgotten about …

I’ve missed you poetry… Remember those days and nights where we’d curl up in bed together and lose all sense of everything but each other? It seems like so long ago now, but if it’s OK with you I’d like to begin again where we left off and turn some more pages together …

Of all the places in which we could begin, surely Keats will offer a lovely start to our continuing journey. I’ve marked the page, boiled the kettle and gathered a warm collection of blankets …

Let’s lose ourselves amongst the beauty of rhythmic words once more, and perhaps forever more …

      Hi Gabrielle – I just knew you’d understand my poetic love perfectly (PS. Have I told you recently how much I adore your poetry? If not … I really, really do). 🙂
