Epiphany 1 - Year C

how does it feel
to follow a late star
no not Theda Bara
a star star in the sky sky

everything seems
on track
when you are
hitched to a star

then lost focus
disappointing enough
to appeal to authority
when only you have it

even late in time
star time meets earth time
gifts are given
expectations met

needs are great
saviors are late
13 or 30 years late
so many stars come and gone

a star child
needs more than wishes
so a star bird
attaches "pleased"

connections made
star gifts
star dove
new wisdom

beloved chosen
into hands received
entrusted again and again
star new risen
