The Star at the Top of the Tree

potentilla frost


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.

    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

  5. I love your visual interpretation of that photo as a star, and the resulting inspiring words.

  6. 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?

  7. 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! πŸ˜€

  8. This is an emotional bouquet of beauty, Melody…xx
