Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

To burn so brightly!

I said I will ask the stars 'why are you falling" and they said "which of us?"
W S Merwin

Oh!-To be more like the stars!

Stars!-  happy to give off their light
and not envy the one that burns more brighhtly
That sail across the sky in one last joyful blaze of glory 
Stars- who accept each other for what they are.
 happy being who they are
to burn so brightly where they are!
telling their story
and shining just for you
and that's poetiquejustis
Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: 
Who created all these? 
He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. 
Because of His great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.
Isaiah 40:26
