Welcome to Day 3 of #The100DayProject where I have chosen to do 100 days of #CollaborativePoetry in order to bring poetry closer to the general public. Today’s collaboration is a special one and I am so excited to share it with you! If you’re wondering what all the buzz is about or feeling FOMO, fret not. Check out the post below and join the conversation.

Before you dive into the #CollaborativePoetry for the day, here are a few things I’d like to share:

  1. The first line of the poem is written by the other person, while the second by me, and so on, alternatingly.
  2. What you see here is a raw, first draft that will undergo further editing before finding its place within the pages of a book.
  3. There is no fixed theme or title before embarking on this poetic journey. With each line, our perspectives shifts, and so does the direction of the poem. That’s the uniqueness and beauty of this #CollaborativePoetry.
  4. Every collaborator in this series comes from different backgrounds, ranging from novice to expert in writing/poetry.
  5. To add an extra layer of intrigue, for each poem, I’ll share an analysis generated by ChatGPT. This allows you to see if your understanding or perspective of the poem aligns with it or not. Remember, the beauty of poetry lies in its ability to hold multiple perspectives, all of which can be valid.

So, let’s dive into the poem of the day:

You might accuse me of bias, but I can’t help it—I’m always brimming with excitement when collaborating with kids. Their playful energy is contagious, and what better way to unleash it than through poetry?

This poem is a collaboration with Aadya Sreenivas, an enthusiastic 11-year-old who thrives on learning new things and adores art and craft. She shares that practicing Bharatnatyam dance keeps her relaxed. 🎨💃 Let’s take a quick dive into her poem!

#The100DayProject #CollaborativePoetry #Poem3

Twinkling little stars- shining up in the sky
You look so happy, oh tell me why?
Moon- so high, shining bright & looking white
Tell me your secret for feeling so happy & light...
Talking with stars every night, dear moon,
Do you make up faces like a comical cartoon??
Hey stars, do you always go ha ha ha
When the moon goes  blah blah blah?
Stars & moon, you make me happy
Lifting up my mood, even when I feel crappy!

ChatGPT’s Analysis of the Poem:

This poem captures a whimsical dialogue between the speaker and celestial bodies—the twinkling stars and the shining moon. The speaker marvels at the apparent happiness and brightness of these celestial objects, prompting them to inquire about the secrets behind their joy.

The imagery of the stars twinkling and the moon shining high evokes a sense of wonder and admiration. The playful tone of the poem is reflected in the speaker’s light-hearted questions, imagining the moon making faces like a cartoon and the stars laughing in response to the moon’s chatter.

Despite the simplicity of the conversation, there’s a deeper emotional resonance underlying the interaction. The speaker finds solace and happiness in the presence of these celestial beings, which serve as sources of comfort and upliftment during times of sadness or low mood.

Overall, the poem celebrates the beauty of nature and the sense of wonder it evokes, while also highlighting the simple joys found in connecting with the world around us, even if it’s through imagined conversations with stars and the moon.
