Fabulous stars

Shapes and patterns
the fabulous arrangement
of stars in the winter sky
and all that we read
into them
how we befriend them
and look to them
for answers

How did I get to this place
and what will become of me
will I find love and if so
will it remain true
forever and a day ?

Fine filigree of frost
on the window panes
this morning
ferns furred with ice

the excited chatter
of children on their way
to school their warm breath
emerging in the air

Then silence

I am awake in the world
to capture this silence
to carry it with me
to keep it close to my heart
a wordless wisdom
I know that it will serve me well
in good times and in bad

John Lyons
