the gift

stars.jpgscaling ladder
to night sky

rungs frost bit,

sides
flame tipped-

rested a 
bit.

stood, reached
further still

’til stretched too
far.

brushing dust
off tailing star.

plucked, bagged
then tagged

a gift for you.

symbolic, timeless
ode to bliss

 

response-

“What am I to do with
this?”
