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.
