O Morning Star,
You who fell from heaven
to take on flu and scars and walk
within weather and time and disappointment,
illuminate this frigid Dark that consumes my blighted soul,
that I might be released into my Destiny, to relay Your reflection as
moon to your sun, declaring brilliance in my lineage, decorating Your tree.

STAR MATERIAL…CHRIST IS…ALTHOUGH HE DIDN’T ARRIVE IN A LIMO!!! DELIBRATELY!!!! 🙂
ORT-ORT-ORT!!!!! BEAUTIFUL!!! 🙂
🙂 Thank you, Sir Caswell!
AND THANK YOU, GENTLE LADY!!!!
I’m pretty sure that made my day. Let me check…. yep, it made my day. 😉
I’m blessed by your poems. Amazed at what flows out from your pen.
How sweet. Thank you so much – I truly appreciate those words. I am blessed by the presence of some wonderful cyber-folks…. 🙂
I’m rather emotional tonight, so this struck me deep–excellent, as always. Off topic, I have a question: do you have to do some special trick to get the Reader to say that “readers” must come to your blog to read the whole post?? Color me confused, or something… God bless you BIG–love, sis Caddo
Ooh, good question. I’m not sure about that. I wonder if it is in the settings menu somewhere??? LOVE color me confused. I think you’d better write a poem with that as a title or a line or something.
Okay, I’ll check the settings manana, after I get some sleep–and I’m chuckling over your suggestion to write a color-me-confused poem! May as well get some mileage out of it, eh?!! Love you lots!
Hugs right back!
A million thank you’s, Mel–I went right to the settings and fixed mine, then checked the Reader to see if it worked–voila!
I love your visual interpretation of that photo as a star, and the resulting inspiring words.
Thanks. I like being able to let my imagination go. And not get arrested for it. 🙂
I have missed your blog, had to take on full time work, shift work sucks. Any way beautiful poem and picture take care my friend
Thank you! Ah, it would be so lovely to be free from that whole working for a living thing. But – we have to eat once in a while! I have had to cut back on my blog reading, too, and it is always nice to catch up with ‘old’ friends, isn’t it?
Another brilliant piece of work from you again Melody. Your posts always get me thinking throughout the day. Enjoy the rest of your week.
Thanks RPD! I’m enjoying the Christmas season, for once – usually I’m all stressed out! I’m trying to go about this one differently, take more in that is beautiful, and leave more out that is foolish. So – I DO plan on enjoying the rest of my week, thank you! 😀
This is an emotional bouquet of beauty, Melody…xx
What a wonderful thing to say. Thanks Lauren!
You’re very welcome! 🙂
LOVE this, Mel! God’s light reflected in your words 🙂
Aw, thanks sweet Heidi!
I’m praying this with you. Thank you for sharing this beautiful meditation.
Thanks Pam! Ah, I have much to learn. *sigh* May we ALL learn to truly shone. Imagine a world like that!!
Oops – that’s supposed to say ‘shine’. Bad teacher… 🙂
Love it – we’re all human, here!
I was explaining to one of my young students how I had forgotten something or another, and he looked at me with this beautiful innocent wisdom and said, “That’s okay, Mrs. Lowes. We all forget things once in a while.” I think I will love him forever for that! 🙂
the wisdom and grace of children – love it!
Taking on flu was an angle I didn’t expect.
Good! I love to read something unexpected, myself – it seems to have more impact that way. Imagine voluntarily having the flu…. 🙂
Thanks Miz Rosy! Keeping warm these days, I hope??
I’m trying. But – it’s not so easy. I need to move to somewhere warm. This cold weather is getting old – LOL
I so agree! I can keep my spirits up for little spurts, and then whammo – down in the deep freeze my enthusiasm goes. Ah, well. At least we don’t have anacondas dropping out of trees onto our shoulders!! 😉
I love that we are his genealogy! BEAUTIFUL heritage! Blessings friend, ~Debbie
Isn’t it? Thanks, Debbie!
