That point of light in the beginning is the morning star

by Peter Menkin  
4/13/2009 / Poetry

a poem by Peter Menkin

Expand it to a myth and I can
imagine the star of the three wise men.
Star of mystery, too.

But for me, since it was real,
it was a surprise
like a sign in the sky of Christ's presence.

It was a star as symbol waking me up to the day
and the presence of God--his goodness.
It reminded me of the other that is the Lord, a welcoming
and comforting other overhead--like a beacon.

It is a wish in the sky.
It is a hope.
My mind thinks of so many things
when it comes to the beginning of the poem.

Peter Menkin, an aspiring poet, lives in Mill Valley, CA USA where he writes poetry. He is an Oblate of Immaculate Heart Hermitage, Big Sur, CA and that means he is a Camaldoli Benedictine. He is 64 years of age as of 2010.
