Daily Prompt: Ready for Your Close-up

Cast the movie of your life.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us SUPERSTAR.

Casting the movie of my life would be difficult. I have done nothing with it so there would be no-one who would take on such a guaranteed flop. I suppose I would have to choose an actor that is just getting started so that they may be able to be spotted by a decent director.


A SuperStar is not always an actor
A SuperStar is not always number one
A SuperStar is not always a singer
In fact, our SuperStar is our Sun

Without our sun we would all be dead
If it were weaker, we would be in strife
But as it is the way it is
It gives plants, animals and humans our life

Our SuperStar gives us what we need
Our SuperStar gives us music to our ears
Our SuperStar watches as we evolve
Our SuperStar has been there for years

But … our SuperStar watches with sorrow
As humans fight over the little that is left
All our SuperStar can do is watch
And hope something comes from humanities death

We can take a lesson from our SuperStar
We can teach other how to live and learn
I hope that if we can do that small thing
Our SuperStar won’t be forced to make us burn

So please think about what you do
Make changes before we become any greyer
Recycle, re-use, rethink, I recapitulate
Let us not destroy our ozone layer
