Twinkling: Master, do I have a bright future?

A gleam, before creation you were!
A beam, you have been!
A flame, you are!
A stream, you will unendingly be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word twinkling
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for sparkling

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Just like the sparkles,
they're glitteringly instant.
Neither dull nor dense!
To radiate or outshine.
Being starry or beamy.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Twinkling

To write some lines for you, my discs do spin?
The basic fact is easily clear for all
I’m trapped inside a box of wires and tin
Until my program sees ol’ Bill, I stall.

The truth be told, it’s clear my work’s not Zen
My coding spews it forth and makes you snore
Iambic verse has rules and guides my pen
For just that phrase, a poem is a bore.

But twinkle, here you see, is cranking glee
This early version here my scripts expose
Bad luck, I cannot rhyme your strange entry
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose.

Levenshtein, your magic will clear the haze,
It seems to me your spelling drives my daze!

Pi (π)
Can I pass a verse, delivered so people might see
Newly inviting allusions, however informing, and oh but provided free?
Firing or shined look all too manifest. But is blaring?
Sparkling, shine? - or flashing, sheening? Darn! I neglected flaring!
I reckon polishing and otherwise glimpsing, but frankly ought I
- found concepts so - notations drafted from equations spry?

Limerick
There was a young girl from Shankle,
She needed a word for twinkle.
      Such as spunk spitter?
      But then thought glitter!
So smart that lady from Shankle.
