To a New Star

I have set a spell
on thinning ice
under that same star
humming her
a prayer of welcome

  1. under that same star
    humming her a prayer of welcome

    She has knowingly welcomed the bright light in a blessed way just as reported!

  2. This reads like glowing hope. I hope many, many, many cast similar spells... upon their countries, homes, hearts...

  3. I find the news items to be quite disturbing.. thin ice.. strange light.. but I love how you pulled them together into a poem - such a cool idea.

  4. Like the thin ice, there is so much fragility to this poem. Like it's about to slip and sink off somewhere. Very nice.

  6. The fickle humors of the gods, to thin the ice under children and then let them be a star to beguile a woman. Enjoyed this creative capture from the news.

  7. The Belchertown police clever and on the know.
    Knowing how to keep a worried lady appeased.

  8. A perfect pairing, Marian, seeing and saying what the woman in the police blotter yearns for--a welcome. Amen.
